The Graduate School of Science has determined to adopt a policy to digitalize the following seven bulletins (hereinafter referred to as “Bulletins of Graduate School of Science”) published intermittently from 1914 to 2006 and to store them in the Kyoto University Research Information Repository KURENAI (https://repository.kulib.kyoto-u.ac.jp/?locale=en). operated by the Kyoto University Library Network (hereinafter referred to as “Repository”) to make them available online free of charge.

 

  1.  Memoirs of the College of Science, Kyoto Imperial University ,

  2.  Memoirs of the College of Science, Kyoto Imperial University. Series A ,

  3.  Memoirs of the College of Science, University of Kyoto. Series A ,

  4.  Memoirs of the Faculty of Science, Kyoto University. Series of physics, astrophysics, geophysics and chemistry ,

  5.  Memoirs of the College of Science, Kyoto Imperial University. Ser. B ,

  6.  Memoirs of the College of Science, University of Kyoto. Series B ,

  7.  Memoirs of the Faculty of Science, Kyoto University. Series of biology. New series ,



We expect that this digitalization and online publication of articles will contribute to dissemination and promotion of research results in addition to storage of the articles as the digitalized articles are also registered in the database maintained by the National Institute of Informatics (CiNii).

Digitalizing articles and making them available free of charge in the Repository are regarded as acts of “reproduction” and “public transmission” under the Copyright Act as the digitalized articles are stored on a server of Kyoto University, and thus, consent from the authors of the articles or copyright transfer is required. However, any of the copyrights of the articles published in the Bulletins of Graduate School of Science has not been transferred because there has not been any particular regulations which set forth the ownership of copyrights of those articles.
 
Therefore, to make the Bulletins of Graduate School of Science available through the Repository, consent for use of the copyright must be obtained from all the authors of the articles published. In line with this, we present the points listed below with regard to the copyrights involved. Copyright owners with objections or questions regarding Points (2) and (3) are kindly requested to notify us at the address shown below no later than September 30th, 2020. The absence of any particular objection by that date will be taken to mean consent.
 
Please note that articles which includes a figure or the like whose copyright is transferred to a publisher of another journal cannot be published in the Repository, and we would like the authors of such articles to notify us as we cannot identify them by ourselves.
 
We also would like to add that, although September 30th, 2020 is set as a comprehensive time limit, we will continue to respond faithfully to any particular inquires after that date.
 
We deeply appreciate the authors and copyright owners’ concurrence with this online publication through the Repository and their understanding on the use of copyrights.
