Digital theses and ORA: ORA Grant of non-exclusive licence

Grant of Licence

Before you deposit your thesis in ORA you will need to agree to the ORA grant of non-exclusive licence. This licence sets out both the depositor's and the Bodleian Libraries' responsibilities. It is necessary so that the Bodleian Libraries are able to store your thesis for the long term and make it available via ORA.

Each depositor (whether academic staff, administrator, graduate research student or other party) is required to read and agree to this agreement when submitting each item.

This agreement may be made by a person depositing an item on behalf of the author

About this deposit licence

This deposit licence sets out the terms on which you may deposit any work in the Oxford University Research Archive (ORA). A list of defined terms is included at the end of the deposit licence.

Please read the deposit licence carefully before depositing any work in ORA. By depositing any work in ORA, you confirm that you accept the terms of this deposit licence.

Copyright in the thesis usually rests with the author: this does not change when depositing your thesis in ORA. The author does not give away any rights to the Oxford University Research Archive or the Bodleian Libraries. However, please see information on third party copyright.
