Digital Scholarship, a website run and maintained by information management expert Charles W. Bailey, Jr., recently published a fantastic article regarding author’s rights for their Tout de Suite series. The article aims to “give journal article authors a quick introduction to key aspects of authorʹs rights” and is released under a CC BY-NC license. The document includes a wide range of information regarding CC, including information about how to license works, guidelines for proper attribution, and suggestions as to which license is best suited for academic journals (Bailey argues BY and BY-NC).
Bailey has published various other CC-related articles on Digital Scholarship, all released under a CC BY-NC license. For those looking to expand their knowledge of information studies, the site is an great reference.
