Standard Author's Agreement?

The license itself can be found here:

We decided to put it on GitHub, since it makes tracking changes easier (just click the "History" button), and also archives the older versions (important for articles we received previously). Please note that if you choose this license agreement for your article, it's assumed that you have chosen the most recent version; the version number is then written in stone for your article (so no future changes to the license actually affect your past articles).


  1. Be sure to read the agreement before selecting it for your article.
  2. When submitting the article, please let us know which variant of the agreement (see "Selected agreement variant" section at the bottom of the linked agreement) you selected.

We tried to make the agreement fair to both sides, but if you have any feedback about it, please let Gynvael know at
