Introduction to copyright: Copyright and publishing

14 Oct 2022 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Research data management

This workshop is the first of two on ‘Introduction to Copyright’. The first session focuses on copyright considerations in the context of publishing while the second session focuses on copyright issues in secondary data use.

Copyright is an area of scholarly communications that affects every researcher at some stage of their academic career. Engaging with copyright is therefore crucial to any involvement in both publishing and teaching, affecting individuals, and potentially the reputation of the institution.

The first session will introduce attendees to the brief origins of copyright with a focus on copyright considerations in both publishing and teaching. By the end of the session, attendees will have a better understanding of different terms and licences available for publishing in different formats.

Attendees will also be familiar with the blanket copyright licences that the UK Higher education institutions tend to utilise for teaching. Furthermore, common copyright questions will be addressed and the importance of appreciating the situation-dependent nature of copyright will be highlighted.

This session links to the following areas of the Research Development Framework:

  • research planning and publishing
  • publishing and open access.

There will be time at the end for questions and discussion.

Presenters: Hannah Crago and Dr Hina Zahid

Level: Introductory
Experience/knowledge required: None
Target audience: Researchers/anyone interested in copyright considerations in publishing and teaching

We will be using Mentimeter to ask questions in this workshop so you may benefit from having a second device ready for this, such as a smartphone.

This event is part of our UK Data Service introductory training series: Autumn 2022.
