The Science Commons

“At Creative Commons, we believe scientific data should be freely available to everyone. We call this idea Open Data. Creative Commons legal tools can be used to make data and databases freely available. We’ve already had successful implementations in taxonomic, energy, genomics, disease research, geospatial, polar, and bilbiometric disciplines, and are providing guidance to funders, institutions, private foundations, governments, the corporate sector, and other stakeholders.”
