This page is designed to carry Egyptological material that has the
form of an article and that can be read on its own (in contrast to fragmented and
informal material posted on the EEF Bulletin Board, which usually merely illustrates
a forum debate).
It is important to note that although posted material takes the form of articles, the articles are NOT peer reviewed (unless the contrary is explicitly stated in the article itself), neither by EEF nor by experts on the subject in question. The intention is that the authors (notably of the working papers) hope to get feedback and criticism from members of the forum, after which formal publication may or may not follow later. Ergo: the EEF Members' Papers section is not an e-journal and does not contain formal and peer reviewed publications, but discussion material. The only criteria that must be met are that the paper must deal with mainstream Egyptology and must have a formal format (i.e. proper footnotes and references).
Copyrights and fair use
I've been told that according to the "fair use" exemption to the copyright rule,
one is allowed to use quotes and pictures from a work
- for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research (cf. uscode),
- provided the quoted material is not more that ca. 10% (in Europe: 25-30%) of the total work,
- provided proper citations and references are given.
As quotes and pictures are incorporated in EEF Library material for nonprofit educational purposes, for scholarly debate, and/or for making a debate issue on the work in question, I believe that all materials above are posted without being an infringement of copyrights. If you have an expert opinion on this, then please contact us.
