Education and Research

Founded in 1913, it is currently one the biggest universities of the Netherlands with a student population of 29,000 and a research community of circa 1,400. Scholars and students in seven faculties and two institutions work on global social challenges in the areas of:

  • health,
  • wealth
  • governance
  • culture.

As part of a large global network of academic partnerships, in strategic alliance with Leiden University and Delft University of Technology and in a unique collaboration with city and port, the dynamic city of Rotterdam serves as our laboratory.

Copyright Guide at the University of Sussex

Copyright gives legal protection to the creators of certain kinds of work so that they can control the way they may be exploited. Copyright law in the UK is governed by the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, as amended. Under the Act, copyright subsists in the following works:

  • Literary works, which includes song lyrics, tables, street directories and letters as well as literature in the more commonly accepted sense of the term. Computer programs are also included in the category of literary works.
  • Dramatic works, including dance and mime.
  • Musical works.
  • Artistic works, including graphic works, sculptures, maps, photographs (irrespective of artistic quality), architecture and works of artistic craftsmanship.
  • Sound recordings.
  • Films, including videos.
  • Broadcasts, including cable programmes.
  • Published editions, i.e. the typographical layout of a literary dramatic or musical work. So, the content of a recently published edition of a work written many years ago could be out of copyright, but the 'typographical arrangement' would not.

Cranfield Online Research Data (CORD)

CORD (Cranfield Online Research Data) is an institutional data repository, where you should store any research data that must be preserved, if there is no appropriate funder or subject repository (e.g. NERC data centres). Fundamentally, remember that data must only be added to CORD with public access if you have the right to share it.

IIIF - International Image Interoperability Framework

The International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) is a group of standard APIs around sharing and reuse of media. It is also a growing community of galleries, libraries, archives, museums, companies, and others who develop the standards and interoperable software implementations. Content includes helpful links around each of the standards, demonstrations of their use, and tutorials and presentations. The list is especially helpful for orienting new community members and developers.

The School of Simulation and Visualisation is a state of the art research centre at The Glasgow School of Art focussing on cutting-edge real-time 3D visualization and interaction technologies. Research is multi-disciplinary and is integrated with postgraduate academic activities. Core research focusses on interaction, haptics, gesture, 3D sound, real-time photorealistic 3D visualisation, digital heritage, medical visualisation, and serious games.

Computing & Library Services (CLS)

The University Repository was launched in May 2007 to provide a digital collection of the research output of the University. It strongly encourages all University researchers to deposit their research on open access. All citation data is made available on open access and where possible the ‘full text’ of this content is also accessible. Material in the repository will conform to the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting and is indexed by Google (Scholar) and Summon, the Library's web scale discovery service. Data from the Repository also feeds the research output pages on the Research office’s academic staff profiles. Any University of Huddersfield member of staff, researcher or postgraduate research student, can deposit material. ('Researcher' may include visiting fellows/professors, who would also be eligible to deposit material).

Content includes:

  • Papers published in peer-reviewed journals; in edited journals; in edited conference proceedings; in edited working papers series and in published monographs and book chapters
  • Other textual material supporting non-textual research outputs e.g. exhibition catalogues
  • Non textual research outputs e.g. artworks; recorded music, photographs, AV recordings and electronic databases
  • Post graduate theses registered with the research office, unless a sponsoring body has withheld permission for commercial reasons or there are issues of confidentiality
