The Project is undertaking a survey of academic and scholarly authors in Australia to obtain an understanding of authors’ knowledge of publishing agreements and their experience in dealing with publishers in order to provide an accurate perspective on current academic publishing practices. The results received from the survey will be used in developing model publishing agreements, toolkits and training materials for academic authors and publishers.
The OAK Law Project seeks to promote strategies for the management of copyright so as to facilitate optimal access to research output, especially that which is publicly funded.
We know that your time is valuable, yet we encourage you to complete the survey as we are confident that the results will assist us in developing practical tools that can be used by authors to better manage their copyright.
If you are an academic or scholarly author in Australia, please complete the survey by clicking here....

free of most copyright and licensing restrictions.
Removing the barriers to serious research.
