Ethics and Copyright

Guidance on ethics and copyright

Any potential copyright issues in research should be addressed before you submit an ethics application. 

In the first instance, please refer to University guidance: 

Copyright for Researchers: Research Publications & Copyright Policy (2021) | University of Edinburgh

There is also specific guidance for students about copyright issues here: Copyright and Students | The University of Edinburgh 

Should you wish to speak to an expert on copyright issues, please arrange an appointment with the Scholarly Communications Team: Scholarly Communications Team | The University of Edinburgh. The LLC REC is not able to advise on copyright issues in research.
