Copyright

Русская версия

Describes the rights related to the publication and distribution of research. It governs how authors (as well as their employers or funders), publishers and the wider general public can use, publish and distribute articles or books.

Journal author rights

In order for the Publishing house FINANCE and CREDIT to publish and disseminate research articles, we need publishing rights. This is determined by a publishing agreement between the author and the Publishing house FINANCE and CREDIT. This agreement deals with the transfer or license of the copyright to the Publishing house FINANCE and CREDIT and authors retain significant rights to use and share their own published articles. The Publishing house FINANCE and CREDIT supports the need for authors to share, disseminate and maximize the impact of their research and these rights, in the Publishing house FINANCE and CREDIT proprietary journals* are defined below:

For subscription articles

Authors transfer copyright to the publisher as part of a journal publishing agreement, but have the right to:

  • share their article for Personal Use, Internal Institutional Use and Scholarly Sharing purposes, with a link to the version of record on publishers website
  • retain patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights (including raw research data)
  • proper attribution and credit for the published work
* Please note that society or third party owned journals may have different publishing agreements. Please see the journal's guide for authors for journal specific copyright information.

Protecting author rights

Copyright aims to protect the specific way the article has been written to describe an experiment and the results. Elsevier is committed to its authors to protect and defend their work and their reputation and takes allegations of infringement, plagiarism, ethic disputes and fraud very seriously.

If an author becomes aware of a possible plagiarism, fraud or infringement we recommend contacting their Elsevier publishing contact who can then liaise with our in-house legal department.
