White Rose eTheses Online: Copyright and Reuse

This repository houses theses produced by the three White Rose institutions. Each institution offers slightly different guidelines and advice. Please look at the relevant information for your home institution.

If you come across a thesis which you feel is in breach of copyright or other legislation, please contact us immediately. Please see our Takedown Policy.

Reusing repository content

Many items in this repository have a Creative Commons (CC) licence, chosen by the author. This licence defines the terms of reuse for that item. Where a CC licence has been applied, the thesis record links to details of what reuse is permitted under that specific licence. Please look at this to check that your reuse of the content is permitted under the licence applied. If not, you need to seek permission from the copyright owner (usually the author). Where no CC licence is given, the thesis should be considered as under author copyright with 'All rights reserved', and you would need the author's permission to reuse that content.

More information on licencing and reuse can be found on the institution websites:
