Proceedings of the Mathematics in Industry Study Group
This section is only for articles resulting from the MISG Workshops including the Mathematics in Industry New Zealand (MINZ). The workshop organisers will inform the problem moderators of the details.
The author(s) must be the sole owner of the material, or a co-owner acting in accord with all other owners, and have full power to make this agreement. The authors assert their moral rights as authors.
License to Publish (LTP)
Papers can be published with Green Open Access or Gold Open Access. If the research was funded by a Coalition S funder and subject to Plan S, then we recommend the Gold Open Access option which is compliant with Plan S. If there is no connection to Plan S, then these issues do not arise and either Green or Gold Open Access can be chosen.
The standard arrangement is Green Open Access in accordance with the policy of Cambridge University Press. Authors must assign an exclusive licence to publish to AMPAI which is the publishing arm of the Australian Mathematical Society. In brief, green open access has no publication charges and allows some sharing of the paper as follows:
- a preprint or the submitted manuscript may be made available by the author at any time;
- the accepted manuscript may be made available on the author’s web page on acceptance and on a non-commercial repository six months after publication);
- only the abstract of the final published version of the paper may be made available together with a link to the paper on Cambridge Core (http://www.cambridge.org/core) in other circumstances.
Preprints and submitted manuscripts may be made accessible under any license terms the author chooses. Accepted manuscripts can be made accessible under a Creative Commons CC-BY-NC-ND license or equivalent. The final published version of the paper will be made accessible to the public through Cambridge Core five years after publication. In addition to the reuse permitted by the Green Open Access policy, the Author may reuse the paper in accordance with the CUP’s content reuse policy at https://www.cambridge.org/about-us/rights-permissions/faqs/ . For any other reuse of the paper which is not covered under this LTP, the author should contact the Editor to request permission.
Please note that the Journal’s Green Open Access policy does not allow the use of the Green Open Access self-archiving route to Plan S compliance. If the research is subject to Plan S, then please consider Gold Open Access (see below), or contact the Editor (via firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) to discuss potential solutions.
Alternatively, there is an arrangement for Gold Open Access. Gold Open Access may be arranged by payment of an initial one-off fee of $USD2000 or under a Read and Publish Agreement between the author’s institution and CUP (which covers the fee or provides for a discount). Immediate open access will be provided through Cambridge Core under the terms of a creative commons license chosen by the author. Creative Commons Licences expressly do not permit any commercial reuse without permission from the Publisher. Payment of the article processing fee is arranged through CUP prior to publication. The fee of $USD2000 applies for 2021 and may be indexed. Authors must assign a nonexclusive licence to publish to AMPAI under this arrangement.
- The Journal’s policy is to request a licence to publish, allowing for reproduction, distribution and sale of the paper or any part of it in all forms and media and in all languages throughout the world, print and electronic, and to grant a licence to exploit all other rights in the nature of copyright, including translation and subsidiary rights, rental, lending and database rights and all other publishing and print on demand rights.
- The licence will commence on the date on which the licence to publish is signed by the author(s) and shall endure for the legal term of copyright in the paper.
- The author retains the copyright in the paper. The author asserts the moral right always to be identified as the author of the paper in accordance with the provisions of the Copyright Act 1968.
- CUP (on behalf of AMPAI) will use its best endeavours to ensure that any direct request received to reproduce a contribution, or a substantial part of it, in another publication (which may be an electronic publication) is approved by the author(s) before permission is given. Multiple authors should nominate one author only to respond to such requests.
- CUP cooperates in various licensing schemes that allow material to be photocopied within agreed restraints (for example, the CCC in the USA and the CLA in the UK). Any proceeds received from such licenses, together with any proceeds from sales of subsidiary rights in the Journal, directly support its continuing publication.
- It is understood that in some cases copyright will be held by the author’s employer. If so, then CUP (on behalf of AMPAI) requires exclusive permission to deal with requests from third parties, on the understanding that any requests received from third parties will be handled in accordance with paragraphs 4 and 5 above (approval will be sought for the proposed use from the author, not the employer).
- If a contribution includes textual or illustrative material not in the author’s copyright and not covered by fair use/fair dealing, then the author(s) must obtain permission from the relevant copyright owner (usually the publisher or via the publisher) for the nonexclusive right to reproduce the material worldwide in all forms and media, including electronic publication. The relevant permission correspondence must be attached to the licence to publish form. If in doubt about whether or not permission is required, then please consult The Permissions Controller, Cambridge University Press, The Edinburgh Building, Shaftesbury Road, Cambridge CB2 2RU, UK; fax: +44 (0)1223 315 052; email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- The information provided on the licence to publish form will be held in perpetuity by AMPAI for record purposes. The name(s) and address(es) of the author(s) of the contribution may be reproduced in the Journal and provided to print and online indexing and abstracting services and bibliographic databases.
