Copyright and the Thesis or Dissertation
You need to be aware of several issues concerning copyright restrictions and thesis/dissertation submissions.
Many students and faculty are not aware that Masters theses and PhD dissertations are published on-line by the UIC Library and consequently subject to copyright restrictions.
To make sure everyone has the most up-to-date information on this topic, please review pdf version of a powerpoint titled A Graduate Student Guide to Copyright and the Thesis or Dissertation, that provides the basics on:
1. Using previously published material in a thesis/dissertation.
2. Publishing material that has already been published in a thesis/dissertation.
