Copyright is an important, yet often overlooked, part of the scholarly publishing process. Scholars regularly engage with copyright as both creators and users of resources. For many graduate students, the thesis or dissertation is one of their first publications. Having an understanding of basic copyright issues before beginning your thesis or dissertation can help you avoid additional work in the future and think about how to best share your own work.
