Copyright Transfer Agreement Ieee

When an author signs the IEEE copyright form, he transfers the copyright ownership of the work to the IEEE. In other words, the IEEE becomes the owner of the newspaper when the author signs an IEEE copyright form, dated and filed. Bill Hagen, Manager IEEE Intellectual Property Rights 445 Hoes Lane Piscataway, NJ 08855-1331 – 1 732 562 3966 (telephone) -1 732 562 1746 (Fax) Copyright belongs to an intellectual property rights group (or laws) designed to protect the interests of an author or copyright holder. These laws give an author/owner almost exclusive control over the use of his works. In particular, copyright protects the specific expression of an idea (for example. B the specific text of your text), but not the idea itself. Copyright is created at the time when a work (an article, a book, a computer program, an e-mail, a symphony, a sculpture, etc.) is first fixed in a tangible means of expression that is now known or developed later and from which it can be perceived, reproduced or otherwise communicated, either directly or using a machine or device. Prior to publication by the IEEE, all authors or their employers submit in writing to the IEEE the copyright they hold for their various documents. Such a transfer is a necessary condition for publication, with the exception of material in the public domain or which is reprinted with the permission of a copyrighted publication.

The status of the author`s copyright is determined in large part by the type of employer for which the author works. Contributions are not printed without accompanied and completed copyright forms. If you send the form by email, you must first print and sign the form or provide the form with an electronic version of your signature, then scan it into the computer. If you have any questions, don`t hesitate to email The transfer of copyright is done by filling out and submitting the IEEE copyright form with the conference.

The IEEE Publication Services – Products Board has approved revisions to the IEEE Publication Directive (section 8.1.9 of the PSPB Operations Manual). The revised directive reaffirms the principle that authors are free to publish the accepted version of their articles on their personal websites or those of their employers. (Authors of IEEE open articles can freely publish the final version of their contributions.) The directive provides that the IEEE provides each author with a pre-printed version of that person`s article containing the digital identifier, the mention of IEEE`s copyright and a reference to the article to be published.

The directive also provides that authors may publish versions of their articles on approved third-party servers operated by non-profit organizations. If necessary, the GHTC IEEE copyright form is available here online in PDF format: GHTC_Copyright_form.
