RDA & CODATA join forces to guide research stakeholders in the land of intellectual property providing them with a set of practical guidelines for researchers dealing with the legal aspects entailed in the sharing of data.


The following Principles on the Legal Interoperability of Research Data focus on all types of data that are used primarily in publicly funded research in government and academia :

  • One : Facilitate the lawful access to and reuse of research data.
  • Two : Determine the rights to and responsibilities for the data.
  • Three : Balance the legal interests.
  • Four : State the rights transparently and clearly.
  • Five : Promote the harmonization of rights in research data.
  • Six : Provide proper attribution and credit for research data.
