Data licenses

A license defines what others may or may not do with your data.

When sharing your data in a repository, for a example, you can choose to apply a broad license to your data that allows anyone to do whatever they like with it. Alternatively, you can choose a narrower license that restricts use to strictly non-commercial activities and requires attribution to the data creator when it is used.

There are two primary sources for data licenses:

If you deposit your data in Concordia's Dataverse, the default license is CC-0, however all the other CC licenses are available as well.

NOTE: Be sure you own the data! You can only publish data that you own or for which you've received permission to share. More information on data ownership and licenses.
