Re-using figures without seeking permissions or paying extra fees

Did you know that USask authors do not always need to ask for permission, or pay an extra fee, to re-use a published figure or image in their own publications?

If these works are also being published then the author would typically seek permissions from the copyright holder and sometimes even pay a fee. This can be time-consuming (and expensive!).
