Research, Publishing and Licensing

As a researcher, you will frequently make use of third party copyright material. You will also produce intellectual creations of your own. This section deals with these issues.

There are many exceptions available in UK law that can be used by researchers. We will also go through the importance of licensing your work, as many funding bodies mandate use of certain licence types. Research data is a growing area that necessitates an understanding of licensing and reuse. Finally, we will go through the importance of retaining the rights in your work that you will need in future.
