Confused about copyright issues in submitting your doctoral thesis? Come along to the new Copyright Clinic drop-in session on Wednesday 19th June, anytime between 2.00 and 4.00 pm in the Research Hive (top floor of the Library). This is a new drop-in session for doctoral researchers aiming to provide support and guidance on copyright issues arising from the electronic submission of doctoral theses.
Whatever stage you are at in your research journey, it is never too soon to think about the copyright implications of including third party material in your doctoral thesis. Now that it is a requirement to submit an electronic version of your thesis (to be made openly available on Sussex Research Online) you may need to seek permission from the copyright owner to include images, film stills, photographs or substantial extracts from literary works. If you are not sure whether you can include third party content in your thesis without first seeking permission from the rights holder, drop in to the Research Hive on Wednesday 19th June, anytime between 2.00 and 4.00 pm to discuss with Library staff.
