In this issue we introduce the EUDAT License Wizard and ask what researchers think about open data, before having a look back at some of the achievements over the course of the year. On behalf of the EUDAT team, we’d like to wish you the very best for the holiday season and we look forward to working with you in 2015.
Get B2Sharing during the season of goodwill with EUDAT’s License Wizard
We’re delighted to announce that a new version of the EUDAT service B2SHARE has just been released. If you’d like to use B2SHARE to deposit data or software but you’re unsure as to which licence you should use, the EUDAT License Wizard is the answer to your problems. This user-friendly tool guides you step by step through the bewildering array of licences, helping you choose the right one for your dataset or software. Try out the demo version which is available online now and let us know what you think.
Open access: What communities really think
Trailed at the September Conference, EUDAT’s study of our communities’ attitudes to open access to data will be published early in the New Year. In the meantime, a summary of the findings will appear shortly in the December/January edition of European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM) News.
