European Solar Network Press Publishing Agreement
These terms and conditions apply to the Author who submits a manuscript for publication by the European Solar Network Press (ESNP), including the European Solar Energy Review Journal, constituting part of the European Solar Network VZW (ESN), a non-profit association registered under the number 0740728919 in Belgium, European Union. The Publishing Agreement terms and conditions are electronically accepted by the submitting Author at the moment of the submission and are legally binding the submitting Author towards ESN without a necessity for a written signature.
By submitting the manuscript to the ESNP the Author assigns to the ESN the copyright to the submitted manuscript and any tables, illustrations or other materials submitted along for the publication as a part of the manuscript (the Submission). This assignment of rights means that the Author has granted to ESN the exclusive right to publish and reproduce the Submission, or any part of the Submission, in print, electronic and all other media (whether now known or developed in future), in any form, in all languages, internationally and for the full term of copyright, and the right to license others to do the same, effective when the Submission is accepted for publication. This includes the right to enforce the rights granted hereunder against third parties.
Supplemental Materials mean all materials submitted by the Author and published as a supplemental part of the Submission, including but not limited to graphical, illustrative, video and audio forms. With respect to any Supplemental Materials that the Author submits, ESN shall have a perpetual worldwide non-exclusive right and license to publish, extract, reformat, adapt, build upon, index, redistribute, link to and otherwise use all or any part of the Supplemental Materials in all forms and media (whether now known or developed in future), and to permit others to do so.
Research Data shall mean the result of observations or experimentation that validate research findings and that are published separate to the Submission, which can include but are not limited to relevant raw data, processed data, software, algorithms, protocols, and methods. With respect to any Research Data that the Author wishes to make accessible on a site or through a service of ESN, ESN shall have a perpetual worldwide, non-exclusive right and license to publish, extract, reformat, index, adapt, build upon, redistribute, link to and otherwise use all or any part of the Research Data in all forms and media (whether now known or developed in future), and to permit others to do so.
Reversion of Rights
Submissions may sometimes be accepted for publication but later rejected in the publication process, even in some cases after public posting, in which case all rights will revert to the Author.
Revisions and Addenda
The Author agrees and acknowledges that no revisions, additional terms or addenda to this Publishing Agreement can be accepted without the ESN express written consent. The Author understands that this Publishing Agreement supersedes any previous agreements the Author have entered into with the ESN in relation to the Submission from the date of its publication.
The Author retains the Author Rights and understands that no rights in patents, trademarks or other intellectual property rights are transferred to the ESN. The Author Rights include the right to use the Submission publication for personal and internal institutional needs, if these are non-commercial and relate to scholarly purposes. The Author Rights exclude any commercial use, other than use of Submission by the Author in a subsequent compilation of the Author’s works or reuse by the Author of portions or excerpts in other works (with a full acknowledgment of the original publication of the Submission).
This Publishing Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Belgium, without regard to conflict of law principles, and the parties irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Belgium.
The names and email addresses entered in this website will be used exclusively for the stated purposes of the European Solar Network Press publishing operations and will not be made available for any other purpose or to any other party.
