They do not see it as a way of dealing with a single work that is "in its own right". Their" meticulously elaborated arguments" should not be subjected to" atomization and acquisition by others" ("Open Acces Monography could take us off a cliff", Opinion, 27 July). It' s difficult not to say that Deegan is essentially not so much against Open Account than against the letter itself.

Supporters of open admission have the rule that officials whose agreements give them enough written notice are no longer the proprietors of this document because they are remunerated for it. There is no way that a fiscal supervisor or policeman can take for himself what he writes for his work, so why should they?

Certainly graduates have great liberty in choosing their subjects, and their letter is more "written" than that of other civil servants, which is usually anonym. Teachers who think this way must make this case plain. You have to understand why it is not unfair that our colleges have to buy their staff to type and then buy back the same book from publishing houses to fill their library.

Graduates may have the feeling that they have to gamble this match for the purpose of professional promotion, but that is no excuse to maintain the state quo in scientific publication.

When we call this "overtime", as the UK University and College Union does, we recognise that authoring is part of our contractual work and not a sideline. Even though only graduates who have not given any research lessons at all in their agreements can truly assert that their works were written entirely in their own lifetime and are therefore their own possession.
