SRUC Repository - Deposit Licence Agreement

Covered work

I would like to deposit my material in the SRUC institutional repository – SRUC Repository.

Research referred to below as "Work" is covered by this agreement and when I deposit my Work in the future, whether personally or through an assistant or other agent, I agree to the following:

Non-exclusive rights

Rights granted to SRUC Repository through this agreement are entirely non-exclusive. I am free to publish the Work in its present version or future versions elsewhere. I agree that SRUC Repository administrators may, without changing content, translate the Work to any medium or format for the purpose of future preservation and accessibility.

Deposit in SRUC Repository

I understand that work deposited in SRUC Repository will be accessible to a wide variety of people and institutions - including automated agents - via the World Wide Web.

I understand that once the Work is deposited, a citation to the Work will always remain visible, although the author retains the right to update the Work. Removal of the item can be made after
discussion with SRUC Repository administrators. If it becomes evident that all appropriate permissions have not been secured, or the Work is found to contain defamatory or libellous material, the SRUC Repository administrators retain the right to withhold access or withdraw the Work from the repository without notice.

I agree

  • That I have the authority of the authors to make this agreement and to hereby give SRUC Repository administrators the right to make available the Work in the way described above.
  • That I have exercised reasonable care to ensure that the Work is original, and does not to the best of my knowledge infringe  upon anyone's copyright, nor does it contain any material of a  defamatory or libellous nature.
  • SRUC Repository Administrators do not hold any obligation to take legal action on behalf of the Depositor, or other rights holders, in the event  of breach of intellectual property rights, or any other right, in the material deposited.
