There are many common misconceptions around how, when and why an author should seek permission. In this module, Elsevier’s Permissions Helpdesk Manager, Hop Wechsler, walks early career researchers through the legal requirements and proper procedures.
He looks at what we mean when we refer to permissions. Additionally, he runs through some of the frequent questions he receives, such as what is the difference between acknowledgement and permission? How do I prove I’ve obtained permission? And, what should I do if I can’t locate the copyright holder? He also explains common terms such as ‘fair use’ and ‘wilful infringement’ and finishes with a quick quiz to help you identify any remaining gaps in your knowledge.
You’ll come away with a clear understanding of your responsibilities when borrowing images and text from other copyrighted sources for use in a book project or journal article.
