Copyright and Your Rights as an Author in Sophia

By depositing your work in Sophia, you are not giving St. Catherine University the copyright to your work. You are only giving the right to access and archive your work in Sophia Repository. You retain all ownership rights to the copyright of your work, and also retain the right to use all or part of the work in future works (such as conference presentations, articles, or books).

However, understanding your rights as an author in the professional publishing world can be complex. 

You should investigate a publisher's policies before you submit a work for publication.
