    Eclectica acquires First World Electronic (Online/Internet) Rights: a one time, non-exclusive use of Electronic Rights, with all rights reverting to the author upon publication with two exceptions: we also ask our authors to grant Eclectica Anthology Rights, and it's important to note that work appearing in Eclectica is permanently available online in our archives for public reference. We expect authors to follow proper publishing protocol. With the exception of collections and anthologies, a given piece should not appear in more than one electronic publication, just as it should not appear in more than one print publication. If an author does choose to re-publish work elsewhere, in print or on the web, Eclectica should be credited as the original publisher.
