Publication Policies



Status of This Document

This document is part a series of documents that describe W3C Technical Report Publication Policies.



Once the W3C Patent Policy Transition Procedure became operational (15 February 2004), all W3C groups follow the disclosure procedures of section 6 of the 5 February 2004 W3C Patent Policy. In particular, section 6.3 states:

Disclosure requests will be included in the "Status of This Document" section of each Recommendation track document as it reaches each new maturity level (Working Draft, Last Call Working Draft, Candidate Recommendation, Proposed Recommendation, Recommendation).

W3C's Publication Rules ("pubrules") requires a link to instructions for how to disclose. The details are left to pubrules proper in order to allow for evolution. This document provides guidelines for linking to disclosure instructions.

Please send comments to Ian Jacobs, W3C Head of Communications.
