What rights do I give to SAE when I deposit materials in Creo?
For submissions from current students and staff, works stored within and made available by SAE Institute Australia via Creo are governed by SAE Australia's Intellectual Property Policy.
For alumni, previous staff, and affiliated creative professionals, as part of the deposit (submission) process, you, the author or creator, agree to grant SAE Institute Australia non-exclusive rights to make the material available permanently online at no charge and with no access restrictions, and the right to alter the format of the deposited work if deemed necessary for preservation and enduring accessibility. In the case of works for which the publisher holds the copyright, it is the responsibility of the contributor to obtain permission from the publisher to deposit the work.
Who owns the copyright to materials in Creo?
Copyright ownership belongs to the author of a work unless they have transferred those rights. If the work you intend to submit to Creo contains others' work, and your work is not protected by such licences as the Australian Statutory Licence (Education Licence), you must obtain permission from all copyright owners before submitting the work to Creo. Works stored and made available via Creo are protected by the Copyright laws of Australia.
How will others be able to use Creo's content?
Creo is part of the Open Access Initiative. Anyone can see Creo's content via Google or Google Scholar, the SAE Library catalogue, or by searching Creo directly. Not all works stored within Creo are open-access.
People accessing works in Creo may use the works for their personal, non-commercial use. Users cannot reproduce or rehouse any work. They must link to the original work in Creo. Additional Rights can apply to works housed within specific collections or as a result of the information provided by a depositor when submitting a work (such as various types of use permitted under Creative Commons licences). A collection's licence type is explained upon submission. Check the information pertaining to the collection you wish to submit to.
