What are the content licensing options?

Copyright in all content on Cambridge Open Engage will be retained by the corresponding author or co-author(s). All work on the site will be nonexclusively licensed to Cambridge University Press and completely free to read. All content on the site can be posted elsewhere on the Internet by the corresponding author or co-author(s) and published in formal publication venues, subject to their policies.

Corresponding authors are asked to select one of the following end-user licensing options, which determine whether and how the content can be reused by others:

  • All Rights Reserved – This means that the content is read-only and site users may access, read, and download the content for private and personal use only. No reuse permitted, except with the permission of the corresponding author or coauthor(s).
  • CC BY NC ND 4.0 license – This license will allow Site users to copy and redistribute the Content in any medium or format. However, the Content may not be used for commercial purposes and if the user remixes, transforms or builds upon the Content they may not redistribute the modified material. There is a requirement to attribute the Author upon reuse of the Content.
  • CC BY NC SA 4.0 license – This license will allow site users to copy and redistribute the content in any medium or format and remix, transform, or build upon the content for any noncommercial purpose, but the content may not be used for any commercial purpose. If the content is remixed, transformed, or built upon, it must be distributed under the same license. Reuse of the content requires attribution to the corresponding author or coauthor(s).
  • CC BY 4.0 license – This license will allow site users to copy and redistribute the content in any medium or format and remix, transform, or build upon the content for any purpose, even commercially. Reuse of the content requires attribution to the corresponding author or coauthor(s).
  • CC 0 license – This license will allow site users to copy and redistribute the content in any medium or format and remix, transform, or build upon the content for any purpose, even commercially. No requirement exists to attribute the corresponding author or coauthor(s) upon reuse since the CC 0 license effectively gives the content public-domain status and is most commonly used by US Government authors.
