The guide provides information to faculty and students on Canadian copyright and how it pertains to instruction and learning at the College.

Scholarly Communications

This section is currently under construction


Faculty create resources for a multitude of purposes. Some are instructional materials to support curriculum and student learning, others are produced for agencies outside of VCC, and yet others are a result of scholarly research. Each of these examples presents a different set of considerations for copyright, licensing, and publishing.  

For materials created during the course of an instructor’s assigned work hours, the College has outlined the terms in Policy D.1.4. For resources produced under a contract with the College or an outside agency, there should be a written agreement which outlines copyright ownership and options for publishing, including placement in an open access environment.
