The Digital Initiatives Department checks copyright permissions for each individual work submitted (journal article, book chapter, conference proceeding, etc). For journal articles, sometimes a pre or post print version is required for deposit instead of a publisher's PDF. If you are submitting a journal article, you can check the Sherpa/Romeo database for publisher copyright policies and self-archiving guidelines. Please see this LibGuide for more information.
If, at any time, you wish your work to be removed from DigitalCommons@RIC, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, if an interested party makes specific allegations of copyright infringement of posted work, the library will remove the work from the repository.
