: I plan to start a website for publishing research papers. How can I get copywright for such materials. I am in VA,United States
It depends on what you want to protect. The context of the website can be copyrighted. The code to set up the website can be copyrighted. The research papers can be copyrighted. You are entitled to a copyright on what you have created. Publishing the works of others without permission from the owner of the rights could be a problem.
Identify the object of the purpose to be able to define what to do.
