"Launch of the Principles on Open Bibliographic Data"

From a Blog Post by Adrien Pohl on the Open Knowledge Foundation Blog:

Yesterday, the Principles of Open Bibliographic Data were launched at the Peter Murray-Rust symposium “Visions of a (Semantic) Molecular Future”:

http://openbiblio.net/principles/

The principles' main recommendations read as follows:

  1. When publishing bibliographic data make an explicit and robust license statement.

  2. Use a recognized waiver or license that is appropriate for data.

  3. If you want your data to be effectively used and added to by others it should be open as defined by the Open Definition – in particular non-commercial and other restrictive clauses should not be used.

  4. Where possible, we recommend explicitly placing bibliographic data in the Public Domain via the Public Domain Dedication and License (PDDL) or CC0.
