Copyright Restrictions On Published Works
Some of our Data Product Documents are only available in paper
copy form, to avoid copyright violation.
We have permission from the AGU Publications Office to give out paper copies of our Data
Product Documents that have excerpts of text or figures from JGR papers we have authored, as long
as the excerpts are properly referenced. We do not have permission from AGU to post electronic
versions of the documents on the Web.
Some of our Data Product Documents will not be made available
in any format, until after a paper has been published, to avoid violating a dual-publication
We are planning on publishing some portions of text or figures from a few of our Data Product
Documents in JGR or other journals. AGU and other publishers have a dual-publication rule.
AGU's policy, from 1988 Eos Trans. AGU 69, page 942:
- "AGU considers only original scientific contributions that have not been accepted or
published elsewhere and are not under consideration by another publisher. A contribution is
considered previously published if its data and conclusions are offered for sale or are generally
available in other ways to the public. Regardless of the original publication medium, including
print, magnetic tape, and microform, such contributions are not eligible for republication in AGU
journals or books."
- "In order for AGU to publish its journals and books in all their various formats, to
grant permission to abstracting and indexing services to cover these publications, to authorize
translations, and to grant permission for photocopying beyond the limits of fair use, AGU must
have clear control of the copyright."
