Copyright, Permissions, Attribution and Citations - July 22

Includes a Live Event on 07/22/2022 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

This interactive session will define copyright, the public domain, and fair use, as they pertain to medical education scholarship, and explore the situations in which each applies. We also will discuss when and how to seek permission to reproduce or adapt material copyrighted by another person or entity. Best practices for proper attribution and citation will be covered.

This session will conclude with a series of "Do I need permission?" scenarios so participants can apply what they have learned. After participating in this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Define copyright and fair use.
  2. Recognize when copyright and fair use apply.
  3. Understand when and how to seek permission to reproduce copyrighted material.
  4. Know when and how to provide proper attribution.
