"This webcast explores the legal aspects of author rights management within the context of the new Public Access Policy adopted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Effective April 7, 2008, the new policy requires investigators to deposit their articles stemming from NIH funding in PubMed Central. Institutions confront a key set of issues raised by the need to ensure that authors maintain the legal rights required to allow compliance with the new policy."
