University of Kansas has ust decided to make all scholarly publications by their faculty available online. You should contact the office in charge and see what they're doing about the copyright.
Thanks for the tip. Their pages provided a good primer on copyright. I may give them a call.
Did you actually sign something that handed over sole copyright ownership to the publisher? I would be surprised if a non-profit publisher would have asked you or required that you sign over the copyright for your original work.
I don't believe that we have actually signed something, but was more of an "if you submit this for publication, it is ours forever ... muwuhahahah". Do we need to explicitly sign it over?
