Copyright and theses – University of Reading

Rensselaer has participated in the ProQuest Dissertation Service since the early 1950's. This voluntary program for universities was established by an act of the U.S. Congress to preserve doctoral dissertations on microfilm and to promote the dissemination of original research at a national level. The fee you pay to UMI/Proquest covers the cost of the production of a print copy of your dissertation for preservation at Folsom Library. The licensing agreement you sign authorizes ProQuest to make and sell single copies of your dissertation upon demand. For a fee the company will also register your copyright with the U.S. Copyright Office. And, for an additional fee, you may also authorize ProQuest to make electronic copies of your dissertation available as an “open access” publication.

Copyright protection exists from the moment a work is created in fixed—or tangible—form, and authors automatically hold the copyright to their material (authors may thereafter transfer their rights to other parties, as they commonly do in publishing contracts). Protection, however, exists only for the particular expression of ideas, not for the ideas themselves, so only verbatim use of copyrighted material need be cleared. Yet authors are free to quote even verbatim small amounts of copyrighted published material under the doctrine of “fair use.”The copyright of the thesis or dissertation belongs to the student. Works are automatically copyrighted at the point of creation. If parts of a work have already been published and copyright was transferred to the publisher the copyright of those parts would remain with the publisher.
