The datasets licencing project specifically aims to:
- Offer guidance and support to creators of data to help them easily understand and choose the most appropriate licence to release their dataset under
- Offer guidance and support to consumers of datasets to help them easily understand what they can and cannot do with data that they use under a specific licence or a combination of licences.
- Provide support to assist creators and consumers in their choice of licences and dataset usage.
- Provide guidance for use in the Jisc Research Data Shared Service.
