Easy Instruction - Open Access Data Repositories

  1. 1. Evans Library and Learning Commons EASY INSTRUCTION! USING OPEN ACCESS DATA REPOSITORIES
  2. 2. Open (access) Data Open data is data that can be freely used, reused and redistributed by anyone - subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and sharealike. • Availability and Access: the data must be available as a whole and at no more than a reasonable reproduction cost, preferably by downloading over the internet. The data must also be available in a convenient and modifiable form. • Reuse and Redistribution: the data must be provided under terms that permit reuse and redistribution including the intermixing with other datasets. • Universal Participation: everyone must be able to use, reuse and redistribute - there should be no discrimination against fields of endeavour or against persons or groups. For example, ‘non-commercial’ restrictions that would prevent ‘commercial’ use, or restrictions of use for certain purposes (e.g. only in education), are not allowed. via Open Data Handbook
