Many researchers promote and share their publications on sites like ResearchGate and Academia.edu. Come to this IAP session to learn about how sharing on these sites relates to copyright and open access, as well as how the sites compare to institutional and subject repositories like DSpace@MIT or arXiv. We'll also discuss recent ResearchGate controversies and lawsuits. This session is part of the Intellectual Property Lunch and Learn Series cosponsored with the Technology Licensing Office. Food will be served.
