Are you keen to improve your understanding of Intellectual Property (or IP) to support your doctoral research?

Copyright is just part of the Intellectual Property or IP rights that you may want to consider when researching for and preparing your thesis. Intellectual Property Rights include trademarks, patents and design as well as copyright.  The Intellectual Property Office has recently launched a tutorial aimed at staff and students in education:

The tutorial is visual, interactive and has four pathways:

  • Creative
  • Humanities
  • Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths
  • Business, Law and Accounting
The tutorial takes around 20 minutes to complete, and you can work through a pathway that is appropriate to your discipline and research.

Remember if you have any specific queries about your research and copyright you can
check out the guidance on the Copyright Hub www.sheffield.ac.uk/copyright or email
