An insight into digital rights: Perspectives from Emerald

Join Cristina Irving Turner as she discusses digital rights within academic publishing at the LATT conference on Friday 17 March, 11am in the National Library Building, Audio Visual Room, Cor. Hart and Abercromby Streets, Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago.

When dealing with intellectual property, it can be confusing to know when it’s OK to re-use and repurpose content, and for what purpose. To help make things a little clearer, Emerald’s Cristina Irving Turner will be holding an interactive discussion at the LATT conference to talk you through everything you – as a librarian, author or user – can do with published research.

For Librarians

This presentation will help to define the role of the library as a disseminator of research and how preservation of research can be undertaken, as well as explaining how beneficial it can be to the author and user.

It is also important for librarians to track usage of research. This is beneficial to the author as it also enables them to track the reach of their research.  It is also beneficial to the user – such as a PhD student – as it helps institutions develop a strong understanding of the most popular research.

For Authors

Cristina will talk you through the ways your publisher can help you when it comes to the digital rights of your work, and how they can protect your rights as an author by acting on your behalf when there may be instances of copyright infringement. 

For Users

Learn all about the difference between copyright infringement and plagiarism, fair usage policies, and understand what can be done with your published work and how your library can help you.
