  2. 2. The Australian National Data Service (ANDS) makes Australia’s research data assets more valuable for researchers, research institutions and the nation.

  4. 4. What is a licence? Note: change from “Open Data” to…
  5. 5. What is a licence?
  6. 6. Why apply a licence?  Use a licence to tell others how they can legally share your work  Promotes re-use and enables collaboration  Gives the owner control and credit
  7. 7. The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research: "Researchers have a responsibility to their colleagues and the wider community to disseminate a full account of their research as broadly as possible”. Section 4.4 In terms of research data, the best way to achieve this objective is to license the data (using AusGOAL) and to place it in a publicly-accessible repository (along with appropriate metadata etc). If you don't license the data, no-one else can use it; it's that simple! A message for researchers ANDS - Copyright, data and licensing http://ands.org.au/guides/copyright-and-data-awareness.html
  8. 8. AusGOAL licensing framework AusGOAL contains eight licensing options:  Six Australian Creative Commons (CC) Version 4.0 licences  Restrictive Licence Template (RLT)  BSD 3-Clause Software Licence ANDS endorses AusGOAL Wide support by Federal and State Governments http://www.ausgoal.gov.au

  14. 14. When CC licence not suitable Restrictive Licences can ‘bespoke’ your conditions of access and use http://www.ausgoal.gov.au/restrictive- licence-template *Check with your DM support, School/Department/Institution to see if one already exists for you to repurpose
  15. 15. How do I apply a licence?  You must ‘own’ the data to apply the licence  Look at your institution/s IP policies  When partnering: agree – before collecting the data – who can apply the licence and what that licence will be  Include this info in HREC application

  17. 17. How do I apply a licence? • Just apply the marking (image) and/or statement • http://creativecommons.org/about/downloads • http://www.ausgoal.gov.au/sample-copyright- notices • Make it visible on the document, repository record, and/or attached to the data <a rel="license" href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/"><img alt="Creative Commons License" style="border-width:0" src="https://i.creativecommons.org/l/by/4.0/80x15.png" /></a><br />This work is licensed under a <a rel="license" href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/">Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License</a>.
  18. 18. Take away • Take control! Be clear about who may reuse your data and for what purpose • Where no licence is applied, uncertainty may lead to no reuse or inappropriate use • Ensure you get the attribution you deserve • Conditional access is a good option for sensitive health data Gerry Ryder, ANDS e-RSA Seminar, Mar 26, 2015
