The Creative Commons protects your work while allowing others to use it and even change it.
The Creative Commons is an important feature of our website when you upload research or download someone else’s research. The author will select a Creative Commons licence for each piece of research or resource you upload. The reader will check the licence and adhere to the conditions of use.
The Creative Commons offers a range of licensing options ranging from full copyright (all rights reserved) to public domain (no rights reserved). The author decides what type of licence and conditions they want and how their research can be used.
The Creative Commons licences are free. The author chooses the licence when they upload their research. Their licence is then displayed along with the other metadata that visitors will see when they search for research.
