BioMed Central Requesting Public Consultation on Open Data

BioMed Central is proposing to change the copyright license in their open access journals to make published data available for sharing, integration and reuse without legal restrictions, for the benefit of science. Implementation would mean that authors would apply a Creative Commons CC0 public domain waiver to data that is submitted for publication, and a Creative Commons attribution license to the remainder of their article. BioMed Central provides additional information on the BioMed Central blog and the full proposal is published in BMC Research Notes.

If you would like to comment to BioMed Central about their proposal send your feedback by 10th November 2012. You can also add a comment to the BioMed Central Blog.
