Workshop: Negotiating Publishing Contracts

Thursday, January 18, 2018 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm


Hatcher Graduate Library Gallery Lab (Room 100)


Which terms of your publishing agreement might you want to negotiate? How? When you’re working on behalf of a publisher, what terms do you seek? Explore these and other questions about publishing contracts in a workshop hosted by Ana Enriquez of the U-M Library Copyright Office. After a brief overview of negotiation techniques and the law in this area, participants will negotiate mock publishing contracts. Participants will be able to choose between a mock contract for a journal article and one for a scholarly monograph. The group will then reconvene to debrief those negotiations. All are welcome.
