No payment to the publisher is required, and authors do not need to modify their publication agreements.
- UC's Copyright webpage outlines copyrights related to scholarly works, and who owns the copyright for works created at UC.
- See UC Berkeley Library's Managing Copyrights & Negotiating Agreements page for additional guidelines for author management of copyrights.
