Unpublished materials may include archives (personal papers, letters) and theses. Provided you comply with the relevant conditions, it may be possible to copy the materials under one of the fair dealing exceptions set out above and therefore avoid infringing copyright. For example, you may copy an unpublished thesis using a non-reprographic means provided you make a suitable acknowledgment and the copying is being done for a non-commercial purpose.
Copyright in GCU theses are held by the author and GCU. Please read the Copyright notice at the front of every thesis before using or reproducing any material from them as different conditions apply depending on date of completion.
If requesting to view theses from other UK universities via the inter-library loan service, or using the EthOS Service from the British Library please be aware that the copyright of the described thesis rests with the author or the university to which it was submitted, and that no quotation from it or information derived from it may be published without the prior written consent of the author or university as may be appropriate.
When you submit your own thesis be aware that you should not include significant amounts of copyright material from other sources (third party) without the permission of the rights owner.
