Answer: According to a Rector's decision research related publications produced by employees and students at LiU, should be registered in DiVA as long as copyright is not infringed. Beside Ph.D. Theses, Licentiate Theses, and Student Theses articles in series, journals, conferences, books, anthologies etc. should also be registered in DiVA. Note: To avoid duplicates check in DiVA if your publication already is registered.

Answer: No, there is no way that you can change the original article that LiU E-Press maintains on the net. You can not even change a trivial spelling
error in it. The reason for this is that the credibility of the LiU E-Press
requires that published research results are not improved by the
author some time after the date of publication We do not have any way of distinguishing
between trivial and nontrivial changes in a secure way. It is a principle for
the LiU E-Press that what has been published, is published.
What you can do instead is to add a separate errata list and send it to us (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will then publish the errata list as a separate file.
Answer: In principle No. If you dont own the copyright of the image you cant use the image. If you want to use an image, photograph, diagram etc. you must obtain permission from the owner of the copyright. However, there is an exception where public images may be used in critical texts or scientific works when citing them (Swedish copyright law, chapter 2, par. 23, 1960:729, changed 2000:665). This means that you dont require the permission from the copyright holder but we strongly recommend that you to look into what is possible in your specific case. See also our Copyright Info page.
