BIS committee UK OA Policy - CC Wiki

BIS committee UK OA Policy - CC Wiki | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it
Creative Commons licenses provide a flexible range of protections and freedoms for authors, artists, and educators.

. Creative Commons wrote to the RCUK in March 2012[3] and we applaud the stated commitment to full open access, which “allows unrestricted re-use of content with proper attribution—as defined by the Creative Commons CC-BY license.” The right to read articles online for free is essential, of course, but unless researchers are given—and clearly informed about—their legal right to copy, amend and redistribute the research, those publications will be reused less, and the overall impact lessened. CC BY communicates these rights in advance, removing the burden of seeking and possibly having to negotiate for permission to use the resource. CC BY's machine-readable metadata makes for easy search and provides clear statements of permissions and requirements; and under those requirements, authors will receive the credit they deserve."

Florence Piron's insight:

Open access – is the UK leading the way?

Open access – is the UK leading the way? | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

From the text: "Novel scientific findings are disseminated via scientific journals. Currently, the scholarly publishing system has become dysfunctional and is in turmoil. The main reason is that the system was designed for the era of paper and print, not for the digital era."
