Can I post publications about me and my work on my website?

No, you are not permitted to use articles that report on you and your research or depictions showing you for your publications or website without the consent of the copyright holder.

Journalistic Contributions Are Protected by Copyright

Copyright protects personal intellectual creations. The copyright arises and is applicable from the time of creation of a certain work. These works include texts and speeches, photographs, films, and videos, paintings, graphic works, and drawings, as well as maps, plans, and tables and also include works of journalism, such as newspaper articles and online articles. Copyright infringement can be costly.

Our Recommendation

You are not permitted to use articles that report on you and your research or depictions showing you for your publications or website without the consent of the copyright holder. You are not permitted to include things like PDFs or scans of newspaper clippings or screenshots, but as an alternative, you can post links to the relevant online piece by the medium in question. Bear in mind, however, that these links are generally not valid for a long time.
