Licencing Agreement Form

All depositors need to provide a completed Licencing Agreement with their materials. You only need to provide a single form to cover a deposit and all its parts and updates and/or additions.

There are two versions of the Licencing Agreement:

  1. Electronic Fill-In Form (msword; 96kb)  
  2. Printable Form (pdf; 173kb)  

Both forms have the same content. We recommend that you fill in (1), which you can email to us and also print for your records.

Note that values for Access Protocol should be provided as part of your deposit metadata.

In case of questions or problems, please contact us at
