Creative Commons & Openly Licensed Content
This guide provides resources for finding content that is creative commons, public domain, or otherwise openly licensed.
There are numerous scholarly journals and research studies that are published as "open access" which is similar to creative commons for scholarly content. Open access research might have the more restrictive cc licenses applied, so be sure to check which license the work is under and use the content appropriately. For example, if a research study is CC-BY-ND, you cannot excerpt or make changes to the article but need to use it in its entirety.
