Copyright and Licensing Policy
We do not dictate licenses for eScholarship journals, which may be managed by faculty editorial boards, scholarly societies, undergraduate research programs, or other academic units. We do provide sample language for a recommended author agreement that most journals adopt, and that agreement has a CC BY license, with language journals can swap in for other licenses. Since adding CC license language to our sample author agreement in 2013, nearly allof our new journals have chosen to use a CC license of some kind. The guidance we provide for best practices is in our help site, for example
