Researchers are protesting orders from the American Psychological Association to remove links to papers from their websites.

.

Multiple researchers took to Twitter recently to lament the takedown notices theyve received from the APA; one posted the letter in place of the link to his paper. According to the APA, the letters are part of a pilot program to monitor and seek removal of unauthorized online postings of APA journal articles.

.

The notices cite misuse of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), which enables internet users to protect their own content. But it can be heavily abused by people who file false copyright infringement claims to remove content they dont like from the internet. (We have even been the target of such attempts.)

.

According to the letter posted by Nathaniel Daw at Princeton University, the APA says:

.

As a reminder, authors of articles published by APA are able to post the final accepted, pre-formatted versions of their articles on their personal websites, university repositories, and author networking sites

see Internet Posting Guidelines here:

http://www.apa.org/pubs/authors/posting.aspx

.

It has come to our attention that final, formatted versions (i.e., versions of record) have been posted on your website, and request that you take them down. Authors may replace them with the final accepted manuscript versions, including the required note linking to the version of record (as outlined in the Internet Posting Guidelines). Doing so allows APA to preserve the scientific integrity of the research, as finding the final version of record through the APA PsycARTICLES database connects the article with any ensuing commentaries, corrections, and potential retractions; it also connects the version of record to related content and citation information.

.

The letter concludes:

.

APA appreciates your anticipated cooperation.

.

Daws paper Reduced model-based decision-making in schizophrenia was published last year in APAs Journal of Abnormal Psychology.

.

Daw told us he received the notice yesterday (as did his wife, who is also a psychologist):

.

I have always understood that we sign copyright on our articles over to the journals, for free, which is in principle pretty egregious (especially since we actually pay fees to publish them, and do service like peer reviewing for the journals for free), and ostensibly retain only particular, limited rights to re-distribute them, but this has never especially concerned me because I have never really seen them attempting to exercise the copyright against us. I think there has been a sort of quiet tolerance of us infringing the copyright to share our articles with each other, presumably because if they were to press the issue it would highlight how ridiculous the situation is.

.

So anyway although I have for my whole career maintained a web site full of my articles, probably many technically infringing  as do most of my peers  I have never before yesterday received any pushback or heard that anyone has. So its shocking, and especially shocking that it would come from the APA which is supposed to be a nonprofit and a professional society advancing science, rather than the more cavalier for-profit publishers. It seems profoundly anti-science.

.

Daw said he plans to cease providing free labor to the APA, including peer reviewing submissions, and encourage my colleagues also to do so.
