"5.9 Rights Retention 

The following requirements apply to journal articles and conference papers with an ISSN. Any articles submitted, or accepted, for publication before the adoption of this policy are exempt.

The policy confirms that staff own the copyright to their scholarly works, and they are free to choose where to publish.

5.10 Authors must retain the necessary rights to make the accepted manuscripts of research articles, including reviews and conference papers with an ISSN, publicly available under the terms of a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) licence. This is achieved by including a Rights Retention statement.

5.11 Upon submission for publication, irrespective of the journal, each University of Bradford author agrees to grant the University a non‐exclusive, irrevocable, worldwide licence to make the author accepted manuscript of their scholarly article publicly available in Bradford Scholars under the terms of a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) licence.  This is achieved by default through this policy.

5.12 Authors should add this approved statement in the ‘funding acknowledgements' section of the manuscript as well as the publisher cover letter to inform publishers that the University has adopted a Rights Retention strategy:

‘For the purposes of open access, the author has applied a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) licence to any Accepted Author Manuscript version arising from this submission.’

It is recommended that authors include this statement in all manuscript submissions to a journal even if it is a fully open access (Gold) journal and there is funding available.

5.13 Upon acceptance for publication, authors should deposit their Author Accepted Manuscript into Bradford Scholars, via RIS as soon as possible and within 1 month of acceptance.  The full text will be made available from the first date of publication...."
