Learn about your copy rights, author rights, and responsibilities throughout the stages of the thesis or dissertation research and writing process. Find out when you need permission to reuse a figure from a journal article, what uses you can make of data generated in your lab, and how to determine if you have rights to reprint a journal article you authored.  We will use case studies drawn from the subject areas in which Dartmouth offers Masters and Doctoral degrees.  This workshop is geared towards graduate students but is useful for thesis and dissertation advisors.  Bring your examples and questions!
