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
The University also recommends the following resources: copyrightuser.org: UK Copyright Law - CopyrightUser.org
Have you checked the use of materials through the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA)? Welcome to the Copyright Licensing Agency | Copyright Licensing Agency (cla.co.uk)
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.
