Abstract: The movement for open access to scientific information aims to
transform education and research through the provision, free of charge, of
the literature in scientific journals, to all researchers, regardless of the
country they carry out their activity in or the institution they are affiliated to,
while observing the natural award and quotation rules. In order to have
his/her article published in a quality scientific journal, the author is almost
always requested to transfer the copyrights to the respective journal's editor.
The editor thus becomes the only one authorized to decide if and in what way
the text is to be published after the initial issue - e.g., through its inclusion in
a scientific database. The paper It considers the claims for copyright
ownership in research papers by universities, academics, and publishers by
drawing on the literature, a survey of academic authors from Transilvania
University. There were analysed concerning the professors' opinion on the
AUTHOR UNIVERSITY EDITOR relationship. The sample was
considerate with academic staff from Law. Engineering, Literature and
Economic Science Faculties.
Key words: Universities, Publishing, Academic staff, Copyright,
Ownership, Document management, Open Access.

communication developed extensively in
that direction. All conferences schedules,
all research agreements' results are now
available online. Researchers have

in the data research, communication and
transmission process. (Repanovici, 2010)
