Licenced to thrill: join our Creative Commons webinar on 1 March


As part of the Library’s ongoing series of research support webinars, we will be running a lunchtime session on Creative Commons licences on Tuesday 1 March, 1-2pm on Teams.

What this session will cover

Have you ever been confused by the choice of CC licences when making your publications and data open access? What difference does a CC BY-NC licence compared to a CC-BY mean for how your work can be used? Also, if your work is funded, this can affect which licence you can select. During the webinar we will discuss the various licences available and there will be time at the end for your questions.

Why this topic is important

You need to ensure you apply the correct licence to your work to ensure your research is as open as possible. This is especially important for anyone in receipt of UKRI funding as the new UKRI Open Access policy coming into force is firm on which licences you must use. It is also important that your work meets REF standards too.

Book your place

This session will be hosted by two of our Research Information Specialists, Clare Humphries from the Kings Norton Library and Mandy Smith from Barrington Library.

Please book your place via DATES.
