If your material has been published in a journal or as part of a book, and the publisher required you, as the author, to sign over copyright as a condition of publication, then you will not be able to submit your material through the Online Submission system. ERIC needs to obtain permission and the material from the publisher.
However, if the assignment of copyright was not a condition of publication or the material has not been submitted for publication, then you may submit your material to ERIC and it will be covered by the Individual Authorization Agreement.
When you contribute your work to ERIC, you grant permission to index and disseminate your material. ERIC does not claim copyright to your work.
