Copyright, Plagiarism, and Academic Honesty

Author Rights – Your Research

Know your rights! You earn a copyright in your scholarly writing or other project as soon as you create it. As the copyright owner, you and any coauthors have the sole discretion as to how and when to use these rights. However, most traditional, pay-to-read scholarly publishers require you to sign over all of these rights to them, meaning you no longer own the copyright in your work.
