Requesting permission The easiest way to obtain permission to reproduce a figure is using RightsLink. The majority of publishers use this service. If the publisher of the figure you wish to reproduce does not use RightsLink, you can request permissions directly from the publisher.
As a general rule, permission should be sought from the rights holder to reproduce any substantial part of a copyrighted work. This includes any text, illustrations, charts, tables, photographs, or other material from previously published sources.
Yes you can, as mentioned in the reply section, within ethical framework (citing the paper). However, you should first view the methodology and/or experimental setup. Simply using the data is not enough.
Putting copyrighted material in a thesis or dissertation is not the same as photocopying an article, or using a figure from the internet for a paper submitted to a professor for class.

So— No, you do not need to copyright your dissertation; that happens already automatically. Copyrights can be (but are not required to be) “registered” with the U.S. Copyright Office. This used to be required to get the protection of copyright for the full term, but that is no longer the case.
The length of protection in the U.S. for unpublished material is the same regardless of where the work was created, or what nationality the author was (17 USC § 104). If the copyright term for the unpublished work has expired, it’s in the public domain for purposes of publishing your dissertation in the U.S.
The only time you should not share your work with all and sundry is if you are bound under a publishing agreement. You should share your thesis. It is hard to get results noticed, and sharing your thesis will increase the exposure of your results and future work.
Scholarly Journals Journals are the most common route for publishing dissertation content. Publishing in a journal has the benefit of editorial or peer review, and the narrow focus of most journals usually enables authors to publish parts of their dissertation in multiple publications.
