Collaboration Model locked

This is a proposal for the development of the Collaboration Model for use on CYTOPATHNET. In order to adopt a concept of open-access, CYTOPATHNET is currently considering a format for authorship and collaboration based on:

  1. the GNU Free Documentation License- use of this format would allow for use on other similar formats, ie. Wikipedia, in topic specific areas.
  2. Creative Commons License- easy to use and understand
  3. dual use of the #1 and #2 - merges the features and advantages of both
  4. or the author retains full rights )Retaining Full Rights?(-


Authors have a choice of:

  1. Dedicating the article to the public domain. This allows anyone to make any use of the article at any time, including commercial use. A good way to do this is to use the Creative Commons Public Domain Dedication Web form; see


  1. Retaining some rights while allowing some use. For example, authors may decide to disallow commercial use without permission. Authors may also decide whether to allow users to make modifications (e.g. translations, adaptations) without permission. A good way to make these choices is to use a Creative Commons license.



  • Choose and select a license. Choose "generic" if you are in the U.S. and "text" for CYTOPATHNET articles.


  • What to do next — you can then e–mail the license html code to yourself. Do this, and then forward that e–mail to CYTOPATHNET’s editors. Put your name in the subject line of the e–mail with your name and article title in the e–mail.

Background information about Creative Commons licenses can be found at

3. Retaining full rights, including translation and reproduction rights. Authors may use the statement:

© Author 2005 All Rights Reserved.

Authors may choose to use their own wording to reserve copyright on individual publications. If you choose to retain full copyright, please add your copyright statement to the end of the article.

Authors submitting a paper to CYTOPATHNET do so in the understanding that Internet publishing is both an opportunity and challenge. In this environment, authors and publishers do not always have the means to protect against unauthorized copying or editing of copyright–protected works.
