This section of the guide is addressed to all members of the University community both students and staff. As an academic staff member, you are probably expected to publish. As a student, you may hope to publish. As a professional staff member, you may wish to publish your own work or may be involved in preparing others’ material for publication. With the growth of the world wide web, publishing is no longer a high-cost slightly rarified activity, but an everyday low-cost one within the reach of anyone. This means you need to be aware of the copyright issues involved.
