Research Skills: IPR and Copyright

IPR and Copyright skills required of excellent PhD or doctoral students

Cloud created by:

12 November 2010

An excellent researcher at doctoral or PhD level:

  • Has basic understanding of data ownership rules as they apply to own research.

Looking ahead, a doctoral student can aim to become an excellent early-career researcher who:

  • Deeper and consistent understanding of copyright, IPR, licensing; can advise peers and less experienced researchers.
  • Manages the deposit of research outputs, open and wider access, and the ‘creative commons’.

Note: These skills are identified in the UK Researcher Development Framework – where they appear as C1.4 Professional Conduct: IPR and Copyright
