I have been working extensively on a project for which I have written a couple of papers which still haven’t been submitted for publication. I am also preparing a website where I want these materials to be freely available. I would like to avoid having to rewrite everything again for the website, so I was wondering what is the best solution to be able to reuse literal sentences from the papers (once they’re published).
As far as I know, Open Access solutions sometimes allow the author to retain copyright, but I’m not sure if always. What kind of publishing licenses would allow me to copy-paste literal material from my paper onto my website?
Overall, is this a good idea or should I strive to rephrase content even if not legally bound to do so?
