The Office of Scholarly Communication provides services for three important aspects of scholarly communication - Research, Open Access and Copyright.
Copyright protects the rights of creators to their literary and artistic works. Copyright is automatic as soon as the works have been put in tangible form (e.g., written works on paper or in digital form, a recorded song, printed or digital photographs, graphics, sculptures, audiovisuals, architectural designs, etc.).
