Managing copyright when publishing
Publishing your findings is an exciting time. Deciding how to manage copyright in your work is an important part of the process.There are two major considerations when deciding on how to exert your copyright rights when publishing:
1. Grant funding contract
Your research grant funding contract may also contain stipulations on how you keep your research data and publish your findings. It is important to be familiar with any copyright requirements of research funding.
2. The extent and use of other people’s copyright material in your work
Before you can publish, you will need to obtain written permission to use any material in your work that belongs to someone else (known as “All Rights Reserved” material). Find out more about All Rights Reserved.
