  • Understanding copyright: basic principles

    Ainsworth, Lyndsay; Dawson, Roger

    Conference item
    Lincoln University

    The underlying principle of copyright in New Zealand is that any person who creates an intellectual or artistic work is entitled to attribution and benefit from endeavour in the creation of that work. Copyright provides a set of exclusive rights to creators/copyright owners in relation to their works. It provides protection for the creator in the way that work is expressed, whether written, visual, or aural, but it doesn’t protect the knowledge or ideas that are an integral part of the work. Copyright protection is automatic under the Copyright Act 1994, it doesn’t require any form of registration, and exists at the point where a work is created. The development of the internationally recognised Creative Commons licencing system has enabled creators to more easily specify the terms of reuse for their own material, while maintaining the work’s public accessibility in an open access environment. The importance of balancing the rights of users and creators is acknowledged.

  • Maximise your research portfolio: communicate your scholarly and research activity.

    Dawson, Roger; Tritt, Sarah

    Conference item
    Lincoln University

    Making the transition from being an emerging research student to an established and respected researcher includes traversing the evolving and challenging landscape of digital publishing and professional media. Raising your research profile involves optimising choices and initiating opportunities while being mindful of mitigating any risk to the advancement of your scholarly work. Maximising the often unrecognised value of your associated activities can benefit your research portfolio and support your career. Students and researchers are increasingly approached by digital publishers, marketing campaigns of professional and social media sites, and purveyors of networking opportunities. These usually come with the promise of ensuring research activity will be recognised by peers and will reach a global audience, but there are so many enticing options to choose from, some with the potential for high impact and others with dubious value and unknown consequences. It is your career and your future, so which tools and technologies currently have credibility, and is it possible to determine which sites will remain trustworthy and have stability and longevity?
