BioMed Central lance une consultation sur le libre accès aux données

Publié le 26 septembre 2012, par Thérèse Hameau

We [Biomed Central] propose to change the copyright license in open access journals to make published data available for sharing, integration and reuse without legal restrictions, for the benefit of science. If implemented this would mean authors in the future would apply a Creative Commons CC0 public domain waiver to data – in additional files, tables and reference lists – which they submit for publication, and a Creative Commons attribution license to the remainder of their article.

We strongly encourage all authors and editors to consider the proposals and send any feedback by 10th November 2012. The key questions, which include ’How do you define data ?’, are summarized on the BioMed Central Blog and the full proposals are published in BMC Research Notes.

Open by default : a proposed copyright license and waiver agreement for open access research and data in peer-reviewed journals

Help put the open in Open Data and Open Bibliography
