So you want your academic writing to be licensed? Creative Commons licences can help you expand the exposure of your writing. Just follow the step-by-step guide below.
step 1: determine the nature of the text
Depending on the nature of the work you want to cover, will define how you can licence the work. Your work could be:
- a website meaning you can add licence details to the source code
- an electronic file format meaning you embed metadata into the file
- a physical document meaning you need to print a written notice of the licence terms
If you have a blog it’s even easier, because Creative Commons has a guide tounder a licence.
don’t have your own site?
If you don’t have your own site, don’t panic! Other organisations havethat already integrate Creative Commons licences
