OSM Copyright and License dictates that the users will give OSM credit.

The first step is to go Properties of the map.enter image description here Then you need to click on the "Place the credit..." boxenter image description here Once you have done this the credit will appear and will be to scale enter image description here

    This surely works for tiles from the Openstreetmap server. Apart from that, you can work with OSM raw data via the QuickOSM plugin. In that case, you have to put the credit manually on the map with View -> Decorations -> Copyright label. – AndreJ Jul 31 '17 at 11:12
