Careful management of third-party copyright when writing your thesis will ensure an uncomplicated submission. If copyright material that does not belong to the candidate is included in a thesis (e.g. images, tables, graphs, charts, a survey template, or articles) the candidate must often obtain permission from the copyright owner/publisher to include the reproduced material.
HDR students are welcome to book a consultation with the Manager, Scholarly Publications & Copyright anytime during their candidature to ensure their thesis is copyright compliant, but no later three (3) months before submission for examination.
Refer to the HDR Handbook for further information.
