Changes in copyright responsibility for HDR theses

The Board of Graduate Research has recently approved a change in responsibility for copyright compliance in theses.

What does this mean?

Previously, the Library checked all digital copies of HDR theses submitted for publication on Griffith Research Online (GRO) and redacted any non-compliant copyright material (and candidate signatures).

However, from 1 July 2018 onwards, HDR candidates will be responsible for redacting any material they don’t have the copyright rights for (as well as their signatures) from GRO.

Alternatively, they can seek an embargo on the publication of these theses on GRO until they have secured all the rights.

The Code of Practice for the Supervision of Higher Degree Research Candidates will be amended accordingly (Section 10.4).

This change of responsibility and process reflects the changing nature of HDR research, where candidates are now required to publish at least one peer review article and their journal publishing agreements hold them legally responsible for the copyright content.

Need further help?

Candidates and their supervisors can get assistance from the following guides on the Copyright web page:

The Library’s Information Officer Policy, Antony Ley, will continue to offer copyright training as part of HDR inductions, as well as more detailed copyright training.

Candidates and their supervisors can consult Antony, where more complex advice is required.
