DEPOSIT AGREEMENT

COVERED WORK
I would like to deposit my material in the DORAS institutional repository. Research referred to below as "Work" is covered by this agreement and when I deposit my Work, whether personally or through an assistant or other agent, I agree to the following:

NON-EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS
Rights granted to the DORAS institutional repository through this agreement are entirely non-exclusive. I am free to publish the Work in its present version or future versions elsewhere.
I agree that Dublin City University may electronically store, copy or translate the Work to any medium or format for the purpose of future preservation and accessibility. Dublin City University is not under any obligation to reproduce or display the Work in the same formats or resolutions in which it was originally deposited.

DEPOSIT IN DORAS INSTITUTIONAL REPOSITORY
I understand that work deposited in the institutional repository will be accessible to a wide variety of people and institutions - including automated agents - via the World Wide Web, except where a temporary restriction to the full-text of the work is required by the publisher or rights holder(s).
I understand that once the Work is deposited, metadata will be incorporated into public access catalogues. This citation to the Work will always remain visible, although the author retains the right to update the Work. Removal of the item can be made after discussion with the institutional repository administrators.

I AGREE AS FOLLOWS:
- That I am the author or co-author of the work and have the authority on behalf of the author or authors to make this agreement and to hereby give Dublin City University the right to make available the Work in the way described above.
- That I have exercised reasonable care to ensure that the Work is original, and to the best of my knowledge does not breach any laws including defamation, libel and copyright.
- Dublin City University does not hold any obligation to take legal action on behalf of the Depositor, or other rights holders, in the event of breach of intellectual property rights, or any other right, in the material deposited.
