In publishing a journal article, you may wish to post your article online. You should be aware that publicly posted journal articles may be subject to publisher DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) take-down notices. These notices target online research communities and network sharing/social platforms such as Academia.edu, ResearchGate, academic institutions, and individual researchers. The notices typically state that the article(s) in question infringe the publisher's copyright and must be taken down.
As a member of the Yale University community, if you happen to receive such a notice, please consider taking the following course of action:
Check the publishing agreement that you signed with that publisher to determine if you have, or have not, violated the terms of the agreement. If you cannot locate the original, signed agreement, reply to the publisher asking them to send you a copy of the signed copyright/publishing agreement so that you may confirm what rights you have transferred to them. The publisher may enforce any rights that they hold but it is certainly reasonable to ask them to demonstrate that they do, in fact, hold the rights that they claim.
