Cadmus content: ownership and copyright

Adding a publication to Cadmus does not change the ownership or copyright of the publication. A bibliographical entry in Cadmus records the EUI’s support of the research that led to the publication and does not imply any EUI ownership of the publication.

The copyright of any full-text made available on Cadmus remains with the original copyright owner(s). Placing full-text on Cadmus can only be carried out with the permission of the copyright owner(s) and of any other parties such as co-authors and publishers who have rights in the publication.

Documents in Cadmus may be downloaded only for personal research purposes. Any additional reproduction for other purposes, whether in hard copies or electronically, requires the consent of the author(s), editor(s).

If cited or quoted, reference should be made to the full name of the author(s), editor(s), the title, the working paper, or other series, the year and the publisher.
