There are a variety of relationships involved in managing an open access ejournal. This page has information about some of the agreements, licensing, and rights issues as well as some resources and tips for finding and managing images.
Authors sometimes use images to illustrate their articles and journals may use images on their covers. If you don't create your own, finding images to use can seem a daunting task.
The Finding Images research guide includes resources for public domain and Creative Commons images. One source that we recommend is Wikimedia Commons. Aside from having almost 38 million freely available media files to choose from, they also provide attribution information that you can cut and paste into your document.
If you have questions or need assistance on copyright issues, check the Copyright and Scholarship research guide.
