Reprinted visual works

Reprinted visual works

When reproducing visual work (e.g. artwork, photographs, figures, tables or maps) from another source, a copyright attribution is used in stead of an in-text reference. This copyright attribution is placed at the end of the general note below the figure or table, and any in-text references only need to refer to the figure/table in question (e.g. "Figure 1", "Table 1" etc.). A full reference to the source is also given in the reference list (see separate instructions for the different source types). The format of the copyright attribution will depend on whether the visual work stands alone or is part of a lager work. Additional instructions concerning each of these two types can be found in the sections Stand-alone work and Part of larger work below. 

Please remember that visual works are protected by copyright law, which means that a permission from the copyright holder is needed in addition to the copyright attribution and reference!
