Copyright Notice

Transfer of Copyright

The publishing industry has grown increasingly complex in recent years, particularly the variety of means for delivering information. To best manage the rights associated with works published in the Journal of Teaching and Learning with Technology , hereinafter referred to as “JoTLT”, we believe that the Trustees of Indiana University should hold the copyright. We also believe that we should grant authors and readers the explicit rights to use and copy works published here under appropriate circumstances.

Grants Copyright to JoTLT

Under copyright law, the author of a work is deemed to be the copyright holder. Transferring copyright to the JoTLt makes administration of copyright and reprint requests much simpler. Since it is the policy of the Journal to release reprint rights for all nonprofit uses, transferring copyright to the JoTLT should lead to wider dissemination of your work. If the author does not transfer copyright to the Journal, the author must make individual arrangements to secure copyright with the U.S. Copyright Office directly (see

Questions of infringement only become the responsibility of the JoTLT and the Trustees of Indiana University if the copyright has been transferred to the Journal.

This agreement represents the primary approach that most journals use for developing agreements with their authors. We at the JoTLT believe that most authors should consider this their primary means of ensuring proper management of their copyright.

Under this agreement, the author hereby transfers to the Trustees of Indiana University the copyright and all other literary rights in and to the article. Although the copyright will remain with the Trustees of Indiana University, the author shall retain a nonexclusive license to:

1.Reproduce, distribute, publicly display or perform your work, in whole or in part, for your own personal, professional, or educational purposes, provided that each copy includes the following statement:

“Copyright 2012 by The Trustees of Indiana University. Reproduced with permission from the Journal of Teaching and Learning with Technology (JoTLT).”

2.Publish all or part of your article in subsequent works of your own, such as a new article on the same subject or a book of which your are an author, provided that you credit the JoTLT as the original published source of the relevant material. For the period of one year after the date of first publication in the JoTLT, any publication of your article in collective work prepared by others shall require the Journal’s permission.

If you are a U.S. Government employee submitting a manuscript, only the policy below will apply.

Work of the U.S. Government

This is to certify that the work is a “work of the U.S. government” (prepared by an officer or employee of the U.S. government as a part of official duties), and therefore, is not subject to U.S. copyright.
