23 Know Your Rights: Publishing and Author Agreements COPYRIGHT TRANSFER Why does Elsevier request transfer of copyright? “The research community needs certainty with respect to the validity of scientific papers, which is normally obtained through the editing and peer review processes. The scientific record must be clear and unambiguous. Elsevier believes that, by obtaining copyright transfer, it will always be clear to researchers that when they access an Elsevier site to review a paper, they are reading a final version of the paper which has been edited, peer-reviewed and accepted for publication in an appropriate journal. This eliminates any ambiguity or uncertainty about Elsevier's ability to distribute, sub-license and protect the article from unauthorized copying, unauthorized distribution, and plagiarism.” Source orsview.authors/rights
