CC-BY 4.0

This entire website (“DARE archive) is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution International license (CC-BY 4.0) with the exception of parts otherwise indicated and all DARE and Orpheus Institute names, trademarks, service marks and logos, to which the license does not apply. The CC-BY license fully implements the Budapest Open Access Declaration (2002) that describes Open Access as the freedom of users to “read, download, copy, distribute, print, search or link to the full texts of articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the Internet itself.”

The abstracts and author’s biographies included in the DARE archive. Authors agreed to publish these texts when registering to the DARE conference and were previously available in print on the book of abstracts and online on the conference website as stated in the terms and conditions.

The video and/or audio recordings of the presentations are published on the DARE archive for the first time. The majority of the recordings are stored on and shared through the Orpheus Institute video-channel on You Tube. You Tube allows users to mark their videos with a Creative Commons CC BY license. This is a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported license (CC-BY 3.0) which is compatible with the version used by the DARE archive that superseded it. You may compare the two versions on the Creative Commons page.

The full peer-reviewed papers were only shared within small groups of participants (plateaus) and are not included in the DARE archive. However, DARE encourages authors to archive their paper as it was presented at the Conference together with the abstract and video recorded presentation. This version of the paper is considered an ‘Author’s Original Manuscript’ (AOM often called ‘preprint’) under the National Information Standards Organization definition (NISO 2008) and authors can decide whether to make it available on the DARE archive under the Creative Commons license or copyright.

The CC-BY 4.0, as indeed all other Creative Commons licenses, is non-exclusive, so that creators and owners can enter into additional, different licensing arrangements for the same material at any time (often referred to as “dual-licensing” or “multi-licensing”). The licence allows anyone to: copy, distribute and transmit work, adapt work and make commercial use of the work under the condition that the user must attribute the work to the author (but not in any way that suggests they endorse the user or their use of the work) and must indicate that the original has been modified. The following rights are unaffected by the Creative Commons Attribution license: user’s fair dealing or fair use rights, or other applicable copyright exceptions and limitations, the author’s moral rights, rights other persons may have either in the work itself or in how the work is used, such as publicity or privacy rights.


If authors agree to make their conference paper available on the DARE archive under their copyright, they reserve all their original rights. Depending on their research funder agreement, this includes the right to archive the paper on the author’s personal website, institutional repository, scholarly collaborative networks, such as (Copyright Concerns) or social sharing platforms, such as (License granted by Member).

In case the author is submitting the conference paper to a journal (Submitted Manuscript Under Review), or a revised version already accepted for publication (Accepted Manuscript) or published (Version of Record), authors may still make it available on the DARE archive on the basis of ‘self-archiving’ or ‘green’ open access. Green open access allows authors to place their manuscript into a repository, making it freely accessible for everyone. However, the funder or publisher restricts which Journal Article Version that can be deposited and typically, how long after publication this is allowed (the so-called ‘embargo’).

DARE open access policy is based on the guidelines issued by the European Research Council (ERC) available on the Horizon 2020 Online Manual. Major academic publishers websites detail their terms and conditions for green open access, such as Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, MIT Press, Springer, Elsevier, Wiley-Blackwell, Taylor & Francis, Edinburgh University Press and Leuven University Press.

Citation and Acknowledgment

If you are quoting an abstract or presentation on the DARE archive, you must acknowledge the author. This is an example of how to cite a video recorded presentation in your bibliography (Chicago Style):

Sauvagnargues, Anne. 2015. “Deleuze and Guattari as V-Jay: Digital Art Machines”. DARE archive video. Presentation at DARE2015: The Dark Precursor. 1st International Conference on Deleuze and Artistic Research, Orpheus Institute, Ghent, Belgium, 9 – 11 November 2015. Available at: (accessed 21 March 2018).

Citing only the embedded video on the You Tube website is not considered appropriate.  

If your paper was accepted for publication, please ask the publisher how you can acknowledge your presentation at DARE. For instance, “An earlier version of this paper was presented at DARE 2015: The Dark Precursor. 1st International Conference on Deleuze and Artistic Research, Orpheus Institute, Bhent, Belgium, 9-11 November 2015”
