Publication Agreement Form

The MERGA Executive has decided that a Publication Agreement should be sought from authors whose work appears in any MERGA publication, including the Proceedings of the annual conference. Note that the Publication Agreement allows authors to use all or part of the work in future publications, to archive an electronic copy in the e-repository of the authors institution after publication with a link to the correct MERGA publications page, and to make reasonable numbers of copies for academic or teaching purposes.

Authors of conference papers (or first-named authors of multi-authored papers) should download the publication agreement from the conference website, insert the title of their paper, sign and date the Agreement, and send it when submitting their paper.
