Research or private study - Do I need to acknowledge the source when I copy an extract for research or private study?



You are not obliged under copyright law to acknowledge the source of something you copy for research or private study, but it is good practice to do so. You may breach other laws if you falsely pass yourself off as the author of material you have copied.

Many educational institutions have standards and rules regarding the citation of third party works.
