  • I have not registered my thesis/dissertation with the U.S. Copyright Office and do not intend to.
  • I have not registered my thesis/dissertation with the U.S. Copyright Office but intend to later.

NOTE: You do not need to register your claim to copyright in order to include a copyright page in your manuscript.
