Copyright and Data

In my quest to educate everyone on research data management, I’m always looking for easier ways to explain things. On the top of this list is copyright, which is weird to begin with and gets pretty squirrelly when applied to data.

My latest effort in this sphere comes as a flyer that covers that basics of research data and copyright. Hopefully, this will give you a better sense of how copyright does (and does not) apply to research data and how this affects what you can do with your and others’ data.

The flyer is CC-BY licensed, so you are free to use and reuse as you like so long as you attribute!

    Thank you for making this resource- we get a lot of questions on this issue and are still awaiting the appointment of a new scholarly communications officer to sort some of it out. I embedded the factsheet in an article on our blog.

    Wonderful resource! Thank you for making the time to put it together. I hope to include a link to it in our repository FAQ’s.
