Digitisation and open access

NCVER is committed to acknowledging and protecting the copyright ownership of digitised content on the VOCEDplus website whilst expanding access to items not 'born digital'. Digitisation and presentation on the web constitutes 'republication' and therefore requires the permission of copyright holders. NCVER has developed a procedure for determining copyright ownership and for obtaining the permission of copyright owners:

  • NCVER will not digitise work available commercially 'for sale'
  • NCVER will make a 'reasonable effort' to locate the copyright owner of all works selected for digitisation to ask for permission; this process will be formally documented
  • NCVER will adopt and follow a formal procedure for responding to a copyright claimant
  • NCVER will acknowledge the copyright ownership of all digitised works in the VOCEDplus record and, at the request of the copyright owner, will withdraw any material from VOCEDplus if copyright has been inadvertently infringed
  • NCVER will provide a general copyright statement on the VOCEDplus web site.

If you hold rights over material included in VOCEDplus and wish it to be removed, please contact us, stating your name, the rights you hold, and the material affected. We will then offer you two options:

  1. clearing copyright to retain the material in VOCEDplus; or
  2. requesting that the digital object be removed from public view.
