Copyright for Research Staff
All UCL Researchers are producers and consumers of material which is protected by copyright. It is vital that they have an understanding of copyright as an intellectual property right and that they acquire the skills to identify copyright and licensing issues when they arise in the course of their research and then address those issues with confidence and in a professional manner.
This 1.5 hour session aims to introduce you to the basics of copyright, also covering:
- How to avoid infringing copyright in the work of others (third-party copyright);
- How to manage copyright in your own work and make informed decisions about it;
- Copyright, Open Access and Creative Commons licences
- Judging levels of copyright risk
- UCL's Staff IPR policy
- Copyright and publishing your research papers
- Copyright and data
Participation and questions from attendees are encouraged and there should be time at the end of the session to deal with questions about individual projects or circumstances.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
- Make well-informed decisions about reusing the work of others in your research projects and publications.
- Understand copyright risk and licensing.
- Manage your own copyright with more confidence.
