North Dakota Law Review
From Copyright Experiences
"Generally, the North Dakota Law Review takes copyright for every article it publishes as evidenced in the attached publication agreement. Some exceptions to this policy include reprinting of government documents.
As far as granting permission to authors or other publications who wish to reprint portions of the Law Review, our response is that portions may be reprinted as long as the North Dakota Law Review is cited as the copyright holder and that the Law Review is given notice each time. The rationale behind this policy is that it is good to have our Law Review's name out in the public arena.
A caveat that our Law Review has encountered is how to approach internet postings and copyright issues. While no solid policy is in place, the Law Review will generally allow postings on scholarly websites like SSRN which allow scholarly feedback. Other permissible cites might include our state's own Supreme Court web site. However, we draw the line on authors posting the articles for their own gain or on a law firm's website as a way of generating clients."
