“The Faculty of the University of Florida is committed to disseminating the fruits of its research as widely as possible. By this policy, and with the assistance of the University, Faculty can more easily and collectively reserve rights that might otherwise be signed away, often unnecessarily, in agreements with publishers….

Each Faculty member grants to the University of Florida nonexclusive permission to make available scholarly articles authored by the Faculty member and to exercise the copyright in those articles. In legal terms, the permission granted by each Faculty member is a nonexclusive, irrevocable, paid-up, worldwide license to exercise any and all rights under copyright relating to each scholarly article, in any medium, and to authorize others to do the same, provided that the articles are not sold. Upon publication of a scholarly article authored by the Faculty member, the University of Florida automatically grants to the Faculty member the right to disseminate the accepted manuscript version of the article in any nonprofit repository at any time. This policy does not transfer copyright ownership, which remains with Faculty authors under existing University of Florida policy….”
