Ten things I wish I'd known before starting my dissertation | Students | The Guardian
Reusing images and figures can be necessary for your research, but it's important that you understand how this intersects with copyright. Use the resources on this page to ensure that the images or figures used in your research meet citation and fair use guidelines. Think carefully about this choice before moving ahead, and talk to a copyright specialist on campus if you're concerned. If you want to use a copyrighted work and argue for Fair Use, that is also an option. It is not an option we often recommend, especially for published works, but if you're interested, more information is provided below:. It is necessary to weigh all four factors to decide whether a fair use exemption seems to apply to a proposed reuse. Courts take a holistic approach -- they do not simply "add up" a positive or negative for each factor.
Manuscripts express data collected from months or years of careful experimentation. Data visualization tools and free drawing software enable scientists to explain their scientific story. More importantly, it will help your readers understand data quickly, increasing the likelihood of citing and sharing your research paper. Editors and their staff will turn down manuscripts prior to review if the images are of insufficient quality. Furthermore, poor figure quality can leave a bad impression on readers and reviewers.
Historically, images were reproduced in dissertations and theses without obtaining permissions from the copyright holders. Because of the clearly academic, non-commercial nature of theses and dissertations, and because access to theses and dissertations was typically confined to an academic, library setting, there seemed to be little dispute that the incorporation of such images into these or dissertations was a fair use. As theses and dissertations began to be posted to online repositories, the publishers of those repositories sometime required that graduate students posting theses to their repositories obtain copyright permissions for images. Registering Your Copyright. Registering your copyright in your thesis or dissertation is optional.
