We ask that you consider the following terms of publication before signing this agreement.

After this period, upon written request by the contributor, RID shall release all rights of the article to the contributor.
While both RID wishes to publish the article and you wish for the article to be published, you now grant and assign exclusive use of the entire copyright of the article to RID. The copyright consists of any and all rights now and hereafter protected by the copyright laws of the United States of America and of all foreign countries in any form of communication. RID shall be the sole owner of these rights which include, but are not limited to, the following: the right to make copies of the article (by printing, by digital reproduction, and by any media now in existence or later developed), the right to distribute innumerable copies of the article to the public, the right to create derivative works which will be owned by RID, the right to display the article publicly, both in print and in an electronic format, such as online publishing, and the right to license any of the above rights to any other publisher.
