Connect&Share: Licenses and Access Rights - How to Set the Appropriate Conditions for your Dataset

Activity: Talk or presentationAcademic


When depositing a dataset in a data repository, you as the depositor can set the appropriate conditions for further use of your dataset. By setting access rights, you can determine who can, and who cannot, access your dataset and under which conditions. Restrictions often follow from the type of data that the dataset contains, for example in the case of personal information. A license determines what others can do with your dataset, such as reuse it for future research. There are several types of licenses that each have slightly different specifications. In this session, we will discuss how access conditions and licensing are being handled in DANS’ data repository. We also discussed projects DANS is involved in like CaRe & DaRe and ODISSEI where guidance is developed for making qualitative data and sensitive data reusable.
