Use of images of artwork in my thesis

my thesis contains images of artworks and manipulation of those artworks by research participants. I imagined I would need to seek permission to use these images from the copyright holder if i used them in a journal or commercial publication. Does lodging a bound and electronic copy constitute publishing

Hi Helen

Yes, 'lodging a bound and electronic copy' of your thesis means your thesis will go to publish. You need to obtain written permission from the copyright owners of the artworks for online publishing. Please see the details from the library Theses webpage at


Hope this helps,
