Claremont School of Theology students should be mindful of copyright restrictions on material used in their dissertations. It is highly recommended that students keep a complete listing of any copyrighted materials you are using or quoting. Though it may be more work up front, you will be glad to have this list later. If you are using commercial / copyrighted material and/or publishing with a commercial distributor, you may have to procure the right to use these.
Pay specific attention to your use of:
- Long quotations
- Reproduced publications
- Unpublished materials
- Dialogue from a play, screenplay, broadcast, or novel
- Graphic or Pictorial Works
- Computer Software
- Sources located on the Internet
Tools like Zotero and EndNote are excellent tools to assist in keeping a complete list.
