Author's Rights
Is the British Library proposing to publish British Theses? No.
A British thesis is an unpublished work within the meaning of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act, 1988, (s.175).
Copies of a thesis cannot be issued to the public without the copyright owner's consent (s.16)
British theses are protected under the Act as unpublished works. The Act prohibits re-publication of any
significant part of a thesis by a third party without the copyright owner's consent. The British Library produces
single copies for loan or retention in response to specific demand. Issuing single copies on demand does not
constitute publishing.
Do the British Library's proposals compromise the author's rights? No.
The copyright of a thesis belongs to the author but this ownership may be assigned by written agreement either
specifically or as part of an undertaking between the researcher and the awarding institution when the course of
research was entered upon. If the awarding institution actually employs the researcher to undertake the work, the
copyright belongs automatically to the awarding institution (s.11)
Under the British Library's scheme the author is asked to sign an agreement permitting the British Library to copy
his/her thesis on demand.The copies will either be lent or sold to individuals or libraries.
Copyright ownership is unaffected.The copy supplied has the same protection under the Act as the original copy.
The British Library undertakes that in every copy supplied, either for loan or retention, the following statement
will be included:
This copy has been supplied on the understanding that it is copyright material and that no
quotation from the thesis may be published without proper acknowledgement.
