Brooklyn Journal of International Law

From Copyright Experiences


In support of open access to academic publishing, the Brooklyn Journal of International Law has adopted a publication agreement that offers you, the Author, a choice of the terms under which your work may be published.

The agreement below allows you to adopt a Creative Commons license as a part of the terms of the publication agreement. For simplicity, we have selected and now offer the Attribution-NonCommercial license. If you opt to include this license as part of the publication, you grant the public rights to use your article non-commercially on the condition that authorship is attributed to you. Also included is a Creative Commons “deed,” a plain-English summary of the terms of the Creative Commons license describing the rights granted to the public.

Creative Commons offers several public licenses in addition to the Attribution-NonCommercial license with varying conditions on public use. If you would prefer to adopt an alternative Creative Commons license, we are willing to accommodate that preference.

The parties to this Agreement are _____ (“Author”), and the Brooklyn Journal of International Law (“Publisher”).
