- I. REQUIREMENTS ON BOTH UNMODIFIED AND MODIFIED VERSIONS
- The Open Publication works may be reproduced and distributed in whole or in
- part, in any medium physical or electronic, provided that the terms of this
- license are adhered to, and that this license or an incorporation of it by
- reference (with any options elected by the author(s) and/or publisher) is
- displayed in the reproduction.
- Proper form for an incorporation by reference is as follows:
- Copyright (c) <year> by <author's name or designee>. This material may be
- distributed only subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Open
- Publication License, vX.Y or later (the latest version is presently
- available at http://www.opencontent.org/openpub/).
- The reference must be immediately followed with any options elected by the
- author(s) and/or publisher of the document (see section VI).
- Commercial redistribution of Open Publication-licensed material is permitted.
- Any publication in standard (paper) book form shall require the citation of the
- original publisher and author. The publisher and author's names shall appear on
- all outer surfaces of the book. On all outer surfaces of the book the original
- publisher's name shall be as large as the title of the work and cited as
- possessive with respect to the title.
- II. COPYRIGHT
- The copyright to each Open Publication is owned by its author(s) or designee.
- III. SCOPE OF LICENSE
- The following license terms apply to all Open Publication works, unless
- otherwise explicitly stated in the document.
- Mere aggregation of Open Publication works or a portion of an Open Publication
- work with other works or programs on the same media shall not cause this
- license to apply to those other works. The aggregate work shall contain a
- notice specifying the inclusion of the Open Publication material and
- appropriate copyright notice.
- SEVERABILITY. If any part of this license is found to be unenforceable in any
- jurisdiction, the remaining portions of the license remain in force.
- NO WARRANTY. Open Publication works are licensed and provided "as is" without

- retained according to normal academic citation practices.
- 4. The location of the original unmodified document must be identified.
- 5. The original author's (or authors') name(s) may not be used to assert or
- imply endorsement of the resulting document without the original author's
- (or authors') permission.
- V. GOOD-PRACTICE RECOMMENDATIONS
- In addition to the requirements of this license, it is requested from and
- strongly recommended of redistributors that:
- 1. If you are distributing Open Publication works on hardcopy or CD-ROM, you
- provide email notification to the authors of your intent to redistribute
- at least thirty days before your manuscript or media freeze, to give the
- authors time to provide updated documents. This notification should
- describe modifications, if any, made to the document.
- 2. All substantive modifications (including deletions) be either clearly
- marked up in the document or else described in an attachment to the
- 3. Finally, while it is not mandatory under this license, it is considered
- good form to offer a free copy of any hardcopy and CD-ROM expression of an
- Open Publication-licensed work to its author(s).
- VI. LICENSE OPTIONS
- The author(s) and/or publisher of an Open Publication-licensed document may
- elect certain options by appending language to the reference to or copy of the
- license. These options are considered part of the license instance and must be
- included with the license (or its incorporation by reference) in derived works.
- A. To prohibit distribution of substantively modified versions without the
- explicit permission of the author(s). "Substantive modification" is defined as
- a change to the semantic content of the document, and excludes mere changes in
- format or typographical corrections.
- To accomplish this, add the phrase `Distribution of substantively modified
- versions of this document is prohibited without the explicit permission of the
- copyright holder.' to the license reference or copy.

- part in standard (paper) book form for commercial purposes unless prior
- permission is obtained from the copyright holder.

- the work in any standard (paper) book form is prohibited unless prior
- permission is obtained from the copyright holder.' to the license reference or
