OPS Author License


Is there a way we can add a function to the preprint site so that authors have the option to choose one from different CC licenses for their work as they upload?

Hello @esciencepress, the licensing policy is typically set to utilize one CC license, that is chosen according the policy adopted by the preprint server, which is set in the distribution settings, which is set in Settings -> Distribution on the administrative dashboard. Although, you can set the license individually for an article, if you go the particular submission and under “Permissions & Disclosure” you can enter the specific license URL that you wish to use for the CC license. So, say you wanted to do a CC-BY 4.0 license, you would use the license URL: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/

You could use the CC license chooser to select an appropriate license: https://creativecommons.org/choose/
