The recent decision by Elsevier to start sending take down notices to sites
like Academia.edu, and to individual universities, demanding that they
remove self-archived papers from their web sites has sparked a debate about
the copyright status of different versions of a scholarly paper.

Last week, the Scholarly Communications Officer at Duke University in the
US, Kevin Smith, published a blog post challenging a widely held assumption
amongst OA advocates that when scholars transfer copyright in their papers
they transfer only the final version of the article. This is not true,
Smith argued.


*​A very insightful detailed post about scholarly intellectual property as
far as it concerns self-archiving in institutional repositories.*
