  1. All proprietary rights other than copyright, such as patent rights.
  2. The right, after publication by AACE, to reuse any portion of the work, without fee, in future works of the author’s own provided that the AACE citation and notice of AACE copyright are included.
  3. The right to post their own author versions of preprints and revisions, including versions covered by AACE copyright but not versions downloaded from the AACE Digital Library, in a personal collection on their own or their employer’s server; such copies must be limited to noncommercial distributions and personal use by others and the AACE copyright notice must be attached.
  4. If the Article was prepared under a U.S. Government contract, the government shall have the rights under the copyright to the extent required by the contract.
