What is copyright?

Copyright is a form of protection provided for original works of authorship, such as books, journal articles, video and so on. Copyright normally resides with the author of the work, but in many scientific journals, the author formally signs over the copyright for their manuscript to the publisher.

Copyright infringement occurs when a copyrighted work is reproduced, distributed, performed, publicly displayed, or made into a derivative work without the permission of the copyright owner.

How to avoid breeching someone else’s copyright

Please ensure that all images used in the articles and video presentations you upload to NeuroEndoNow are your own creations and are not taken from books, journals or any other copyrighted source. Bear in mind that, in cases where you signed copyright over to the publisher, the copyright of the final published figures from your own manuscript resides with the publisher and can only be used with their
written permission.

It is permissible to redraw any copyrighted figures or diagrams from scratch or use alternative versions of your own figures (e.g. earlier versions that are not identical to the published version).

Please note that the respective publishers have granted permission for use original figures from the following journals in articles, video presentations and live
presentations on NeuroEndoNow, providing that the original article is credited.:
