Upload Form for Sharing Your Work

https://opensiddur.org/?p=781 Upload Form for Sharing Your Work 2010-07-19 21:09:18 Text the Open Siddur Project the Hierophant the Hierophant https://opensiddur.org/copyright-policy/ the Hierophant
This project is primarily focused on sharing textual works of prayer, liturgy, and public readings offered in liturgical contexts. If you would like to share something else, please contact us first.

To save us time, rather than sending us a PDF or image, please share your document in the native editable format used in its preparation. If your work only survives as a printed page, we will scan and transcribe the printed work. (Contact us if you need to mail your work to our physical address for digital imaging.) If your work only survives as legible text in a digitized image or PDF, we will work to transcribe that text to machine-readable, searchable, and copy-pastable Unicode text suitable for displaying in HTML.

In presenting both historic and contemporary work, we prioritize the display of semantic phrases for the linear translation of text wherever possible. We maintain (or reconstruct, if no structure is evident) the division of text into stanzas or paragraphs based on common theme. Concrete representations of poetry, prayer, and prayer-poems are only provided in the presentation of previously published reference sources (if the work has been previously published).

Our project does not demand conformity to any style. However, we do have preferences which you may use for a style guide. Please consult our style guide for guidance on transliteration vs. translation (especially for complex terms such as divine names), and a transliteration schema for Romanizing vocalized Hebrew.

    License Options

    If you are the creator or copyright steward of a work under copyright, you are invited to share your work through the Open Siddur Project under an Open Content license through this form. (You retain the copyright over the work you contribute.) The Open Siddur Project will accept any material related to Jewish spiritual practice so long as it is either a work in the Public Domain or else a work under copyright that is shared with one of the following three Open Content licenses: the (CC0, CC BY, or CC BY-SA) all formulated by the Creative Commons organization. By choosing to share your work with any of these licenses, you will legally ensure that your work remains available for others to adopt, adapt, remix, and redistribute. This is a binding, albeit, non-exclusive agreement to share your work through the Open Siddur Project under the terms of the license that you choose. (You may make separate agreements with other publishers.) For additional details, please refer to our copyright policy.


    Creative Commons By Attribution ShareAlike (CC BY-SA)

    Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike. Share your work under the condition that any derivative work (for example, a translation) correctly credits you, citing your original work. The CC BY-SA 4.0 International license is a remix friendly, free-culture compatible, copyleft license. It ensures that any work derived from your work must also be shared with this same license, thereby ensuring an unbroken chain of attribution until the copyright term of your work expires and it enters the Public Domain. CC BY-SA licensed works may only be remixed with works shared with other compatible licenses — CC0 and CC BY. A publisher who would like to remix or republish content shared under a CC BY-SA license without abiding by these terms must communicate directly with the creator or copyright steward in order to agree upon new, mutually agreed upon terms.

    Creative Commons By Attribution (CC BY)

    Creative Commons Attribution. Share your work under the condition that any derivative work (such as a translation) correctly credits you, citing your original work. Unlike the CC BY-SA license, second-generation derivative works (e.g., a reprint of the translation in a newspaper) may be shared under more restrictive licensing (even plain copyright). That feature is what makes the CC BY 4.0 International license “remix friendly.” In other words, content licensed under the CC BY may be remixed with more restrictive Creative Commons licenses as well as with copyrighted work not being shared under any open content/free-culture license. We recommend it only for works intended to be republished or remixed in publications with restrictive content policies (such as plain copyright).

    Creative Commons Zero (CC0)

    Creative Commons Zero. Share your work without any conditions, for example, requiring correct attribution. The CC0 is a Public Domain dedication that states that you relinquish claims on your work during the length of its term under copyright. This license is the least restrictive of all the Creative Commons Open Content licenses. We recommend it only for sharing digital reproductions of work that already exist in the Public Domain.
