It is intended to aid researchers, teachers, librarians, administrators and many others using and encountering Creative Commons licences in their work.
In particular, this guideline goes through the following issues :
1. What is Open Science?
2. How should I license my data for the purposes of Open Science?
3. But I would like attribution when others use my dataset.
In that case, shouldn’t I use a CC BY licence?
4. I’m uncomfortable with others using my research for commercial purposes.
Should I use a non-commercial licence for my dataset?
5. I’m uncomfortable permitting use of my research for any and all purposes.
Should I use a ‘No Derivatives’ (ND) licence for my dataset?
6. What happens if I use ‘Share Alike’ (SA) licensed material in my work?
Does that mean I have to make my work available under the same SA licence?
7. It sounds like you’re really pushing for the use of CC0 for open science datasets.
