Searching and finding reliable information is often difficult, but to legally share and cite this information can be even more confusing. This is where the Study Centres can provide some guidance in offering students, teachers and other employees a helping hand.

Legal use of information is not always self-evident. For instance, would you know the answers to the following questions?

  • What is plagiarism?
  • What are some basic rules for a reference list?
  • Is it possible to present a magazine article on Scholar?
  • Can I legally show a film/dvd to my class?
  • What are the possibilities and restrictions when I want to publish something?

The following pages will show how to process sources, explain plagiarism and copyright, and give some advice on how to publish your own articles online.

The website of the Copyright Information Point (Auteursrecht Informatiepunt) is maintained primarily by representatives of the Reader Bureau and the HAN Study Centres. The Reader Bureau produces readers and provides everything from organization, administration and production of readers and other teaching materials, both on paper and online (on Scholar). The Reader Bureau also provides information and advice about authorship and copyrighted material.

The team of experts on copyright further consists of people who work at the compartments Legal Business, ICT Education and Marketing, Communication and Publicity.
