While You're Writing
When you use someone else's work in your thesis or dissertation, assess the need for copyright permission immediately. This will save you from a last-minute scramble for obtaining copyright permissions right when you need to be doing many other things, like defending your thesis, filing for graduation, or finishing up those last-minute tasks. Follow these instructions to obtain copyright permission.
