Are you a graduate student who is working on your thesis or dissertation?

Do you want to learn how to use copyrighted material in your research, and how to protect your rights as an author? If so, this workshop is for you.

In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Understand the basics of copyright law and how it applies to your thesis
  • Use fair dealing and other exceptions to copy and share works for your research
  • Seek and obtain permission from copyright owners when needed
  • cIRcle, UBC’s institutional repository, and how to choose a suitable open-access license for your work
  • Publish your thesis in a journal or book, negotiate your publishing contract, and how to ensure that articles you have previously published are eligible for inclusion within your thesis or dissertation, as appropriate.

The workshop will be presented by a copyright librarian, who will provide you with practical tips and resources for your research. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss your specific issues with the presenter and other participants. You will also receive a list of useful links on which this presentation has been based.

This workshop qualifies for the Scholarly Research, Writing, and Publishing Credential offered through the College of Graduate Studies.
