Declaration of Researcher Rights in Negotiating the Future of Scholarly Communication
The FORCE11 WG has published their final output: Declaration of Researcher Rights in Negotiating the Future of Scholarly Communication and an accompanying user guide.
The Declaration was written specifically for use in negotiations with publishers and service providers. It can be taken as is and sent directly to your institution’s team negotiating contracts. It can also be easily adapted and refined for your specific needs and applications. It can serve as a conversation starter, a shared set of values, or as a rallying point around which to organize. If your institution is too small to have it’s own formal negotiation team, this document can be your own hard-hitting negotiating team.
