Copyright for Graduate Student Creators: Preparing your research for publication

Date & Time

Thursday, 02 June 2022
11:00 to 12:30



Offered by

Graduate Pathways to Success, Scholarly Communications and Copyright Office

Graduate students are both creators and users of copyrighted works. From teaching to research and publication, copyright considerations can impact how and what you share from others in your work while accurately attributing their academic contribution, and how you make your own work available. This session will introduce copyright considerations for graduate students as they prepare to disseminate their work outside of the classroom and their research/thesis projects. We will also touch on broader copyright issues as they apply to the academy and scholarly publishing ecosystem.  

This workshop will cover:

•    Copyright basics for creators and users
•    Author rights and copyright considerations for publication
•    Copyright and the academy

Please note: the last 30 minutes of this session will be for questions/consultation and attendance is optional


Stephanie Savage is a Scholarly Communications and Copyright Services Librarian at UBC Library. In her current role, she provides copyright expertise to the UBC community and helps develop open initiatives on campus and support researchers in disseminating their research as widely as possible.
