Copyright: Licensing your own content

Copyright legislation and licences relating to academic practice.

Licensing open access content

If you are creating material to be open educational resources or open access, it is still important to manage your copyright in terms of what you want other people to be able to do with it. To do so it is best to create a licence that is clear on what users are able to do. One of the most commonly used licencing schemes is Creative Commons, which is recognised internationally.
