Your position as an author is strengthened, not weakened, as a result of this policy. All rights you grant to BU are non-exclusive. You retain your copyright, unless you decide to assign it to a journal publisher. Even if you do assign all other rights to a publisher, the rights you’ve assigned to BU (which apply to the author’s final draft) can be reassigned back to you.
