Having the cake, and eating it too!

PNAS announces that it will allow authors to keep copyright for the articles published in the proceedings:

Beginning with papers submitted in January 2009, PNAS authors will retain copyright to their work and will give the National Academy of Sciences an exclusive license to publish it.

Among other things, this system would allow the author(s) to

  • … freely reuse their work for any educational use. [and]

  • … post the PDF of their article on their web page.

Take a look!
