The rights retention strategy is a tool for researchers to retain sufficient rights on their scientific articles so that they can make them available in immediate open access, regardless of the distribution model of the journal in which they are published. This strategy allows the unrestricted dissemination of knowledge within the scientific community and beyond.
It represents a new approach for researchers. The French Committee for Open Science hopes that this guide will help you to apply the rights retention strategy. It provides practical suggestions for that purpose, and solutions to overcome any difficulties you may encounter.
