In the specific case that you want to publish a work already deposited, there could only be a problem if the person receiving the rights (editor or editor) does not accept the prior dissemination of the original work (preprint). However, it should be noted that:
- Many publishers and magazines accept the institutional deposit of the preprints.
- In any case, the publication of the work in the University's institutional repository increases its international accessibility and visibility, as evidenced by the large number of companies and researchers who want to contact students after the works have been deposited. For example, this is the case for some publishers who have shown interest in publishing a book after consulting the original work in the repository.
If the work is finally published, it must be borne in mind that the assignment contract or the publisher's publication rules must specify whether the assignment is exclusive, what specific rights the author assigns, and with what duration and in what territorial scope.
If the assignment contract or the publication rules do not specify this information, the assignment is limited to 5 years, in the country in which the assignment is made, and in the modalities of exploitation that are indispensable for the fulfillment of the contract.
