Guidance on creative commons licensing

  1. 1. Guidance on Creative Commons licensing for C-SAP dissemination event<br />We aim to create a website that will put together presentations and posters from the C-SAP dissemination event. Importantly, we would like to ensure that those contributions are shared as widely as possible and ideally re-used and distributed within various academic networks. This is why all participants are invited to license their work under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 2.0 UK: England & Wales license. This means that everything displayed on the C-SAP dissemination event website can be shared under the following conditions:<br /><ul><li>Attribution  - The original author must be given credit
  2. 2. Non-Commercial  - The work may not be used for commercial purposes </li></ul>Share Alike — If you alter, transform, or build upon the licensed work, you may distribute the resulting work only under a licence identical to this one.<br />Importantly, with a CC licence, you keep your copyright but allow others to copy and distribute your work, provided they attribute your work and adhere to the conditions you specify in the licence.<br />There are many benefits attached to applying a Creative Commons license to your work. The license signals to others clearly whether the work can be shared, distributed and/or re-used without having to go through the lengthy process of contacting the author or resolving copyright issues. As a result, the work can be exploited more effectively, more quickly and more widely, whilst also increasing its impact (adapted from “An Introduction to Creative Commons” by UKOLN, The United Kingdom Office for Library and Information Networking).<br />For more information, please see the About the Licences guide from Creative Commons. Feel free to contact Anna Gruszczynska a.gruszczynska@bham.ac.uk at C-SAP if you have any further questions.<br />
