Under fair dealing, you may make copies of another person’s work(s) and hand them out to students enrolled in your course. This includes the copying of an entire journal article.

You must adhere to the amount that may be copied (i.e. copying limits) under fair dealing. Please see the Fair Dealing Guidelines for the copying limits.
