Presenters at the Learning Conference are not obliged to publish in the Learning Conference proceedings. However, if you do decide to take this option, publication will be based on the following publishing agreement.


COMMON GROUND PUBLISHING

PUBLISHING AGREEMENT

 

1. COMMON GROUND WILL PUBLISH THIS PAPER OR CHAPTER

This agreement is between the author(s) of the submitted work and Common Ground Publishing. Common Ground will publish this work in print and electronic formats, separately and/or in a collection of other papers/chapters. Common Ground will provide the author with one free printed copy of the work when it is first published. The author may purchase additional printed copies of the work at the author discount of 50% of the recommended retail price.

2. COPYRIGHT IS THE AUTHOR'S

Copyright will be attributed to the author(s). Common Ground will be the exclusive international publisher of the work in all formats. Common Ground will pay the author 50% of rights purchased for any other purpose - including translation, photocopying and re-publication rights.

3. THE AUTHOR WILL REFEREE THREE SIMILAR PAPERS OR CHAPTERS

Each author agrees to review or referee at least three other works on comparable themes and of similar length within twelve months this agreement. The author(s) may reject a request to review a particular work, but they nevertheless agree either to communicate this or to return a completed review or referee report within two weeks of an email request being made by Common Ground Publishing.

4. THERE IS NO UNLAWFUL MATERIAL

The author(s) assure the publisher that the material contained in the paper/chapter is not defamatory, unlawful, obscene, invasive of another person's privacy, hateful, racially or ethnically objectionable, abusive, threatening, harmful or in contempt of court, and undertake to indemnify Common Ground Publishing against any claims which may be made in situations where material is considered to be any of these things, or has any of these effects.

5. THERE IS NO INFRINGEMENT OF THE COPYRIGHT OF OTHERS

The author(s) assure Common Ground Publishing that the chapter/paper is based entirely on original material, that it does not infringe anybody else's copyright, and that the author(s) have the right to licence copyright to Common Ground. In the case of copyright material, such as the use of quotes or images beyond what is legally considered 'fair use', the author(s) and/or editor(s) will undertake to arrange, and if necessary to pay for, permissions, and retain documentation proving that these permissions have been secured. The author(s) agree to indemnify Common Ground against any claims as a result of breech of the copyright of others.

6. ROYALTIES

The publisher will pay royalties at a rate of 20% of the publisher's sales revenues, either direct sales revenues through the publisher's own online bookstore, or indirect sales revenues to other online or physical bookstores. In the case of author purchases, the royalty payment is included in the author discount of 50%. Below a minimum amount of $US50, royalties will be allowed to accumulate. Royalties shall be divided amongst the author(s) on the assumption that their contributions are equal. Royalties will be paid on a six monthly basis.

7. THE AUTHOR(S) AGREE TO PUBLICATION

By submitting their paper for refereeing and then resubmitting the final paper for publication, the author(s) agree to the publication of their paper by Common Ground Publishing. The final paper should include this contract at the end of the paper and be sent from an email address that includes the name of the principal author (the person who has submitted the paper in its original or revised form). In the case of multiple authorship, the principal author guarantees Common Ground that they have provided the other authors with a copy of the text for their checking, and that they have all agreed to the terms of this agreement.
