Your thesis, copyright and ORA (Toolkit Activity)

IT Learning Centre Skills toolkit penknife icon

ORA is a permanent and secure online archive of research output produced by members of the University of Oxford. You may be required to submit your research thesis as an e-thesis (uploaded to the ORA archive) in order to graduate, as well as submitting a physical copy to the Bodleian.


This task will start you thinking about the content available on ORA, and the copyright of third party materials you may include in your e-thesis, when you submit it to the Oxford Research Archive ORA. You can try this task on your own, although it was designed to be done in a classroom with a teacher to support you.
