Articulāte is an Open Access Publication.  An Open Access Publication is one that meets the following two conditions:

  1. The author(s) and copyright holder(s) grant(s) to all users a free, irrevocable, worldwide, perpetual right of access to, and a license to copy, use, distribute, transmit and display the work publicly and to make and distribute derivative works, in any digital medium for any responsible purpose, subject to proper attribution of authorship, as well as the right to make small numbers of printed copies for their personal use.
  2. A complete version of the work and all supplemental materials, including a copy of the permission as stated above, in a suitable standard electronic format is deposited immediately upon initial publication in at least one online repository that is supported by an academic institution, scholarly society, government agency, or other well-established organization that seeks to enable open access, unrestricted distribution, interoperability, and long-term archiving (for the biomedical sciences, PubMed Central is such a repository).

Articulāte claims Creative Commons Licenses for the archive of published papers, which are authored by Denison undergraduates. Let it be known that Articulāte attempted to make contact with authors in order to receive expressed permission to republish their work. If you are displeased to find your Articulāte writings available online, we apologize for having not been able to reach you; and we request that you please email, and we will promptly cancel our users’ access to your work.

Authors that publish in Articulāte agree to have their work licensed under a Attribution-NonCommerical (CC BY-NC) Creative Commons License.

This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, and although their new works must also acknowledge you and be non-commercial, they don’t have to license their derivative works on the same terms.
