To keep things simple, on our resources page we have put a “Credit” field. A resource may have several authors, but they have decided who should appear in the copyright statement. For example, the resource “Drawing Conclusions from Multiple Perspectives” was produced as a collaboration between the two authors Lucy Breag and Jenny Toerien, but we have decided it is simplest to credit all our resources to Oakham School, so the copyright statement should be:
As far as possible we have already put a copyright statement on all resources uploaded to the resources section. If you adapt or share the resource outside your organisation you must keep this statement with it.
It is considered best practice to hyperlink the statement (although less important if the resource will only ever be used in print!).
To make life simpler we have hyperlinked all the titles on statements for resources published on this site to the main resources section, rather than to the individual resources themselves. It means that, for example, the link would survive a slight title change.
The author (credit) should be hyperlinked to a page with some information about the author. An organisation website is fine. If an individual is credited you could, for example, link to their FOSIL Group member’s page.
Creating your own derivative resources (“remixing”)
If you create a resource which is entirely your own then it is up to you under what terms you share it – but do be clear if you upload anything to the forum that you do not wish to be CC BY-NC-SA 4.0. If, however, you adapt a resource from the site then you are obliged (under the terms of the license) to share it under the same license. The credit for such a resource should read:
