As provided by SRIF Policy, all technical, educational and professional publications are required to be copyrighted by the SRIF. Copyright is held by the Institute itself and not by any Society.
In further keeping with SRIF policy, the conference shall ensure that, prior to publication, all authors or their employers shall transfer to the SRIF in writing any copyright they hold for their individual papers. Such transfer shall be necessary for publication, except for material in the public domain or reprinted from a copyrighted publication. In return, the SRIF shall grant authors and their employers permission in writing to make copies and otherwise reuse the material under terms approved by the SRIF Publication Services and Products Board, which shall be specified in the SRIF Operations Manual. This includes electronic posting of accepted article preprints.
