Thursday, June 15, 2000 Continuing Education Course: Licensing Electronic Journals
Lead: PAM Division
Date and Time: Thursday, June 15, 2000 ; 8:30 am to 4:00 pm
Level of Target Audience: Beginner
Track : Professional Development
Speaker: Trisha Davis, Ohio State University
Abstract: Electronic journals are fast becoming the preferred method for information dissemination, especially in the sciences. This workshop will guide the participant through all the steps necessary for revising a standard license agreement into a contract that is acceptable to both parties. The principles and practices of license negotiation will be covered, including both business and technical issues. Participants will break up into small, role-playing groups and negotiate a generic license, which will then be critiqued and evaluated by the other groups.
