“On 22nd May 2019, members of the Jisc Open Research Hub team held a webinar which presented a set of design options around the assigning of more than one licence or access type to a repository deposit. The aim was to get feedback to help the design team decide which approach to develop.
Although the webinar concentrated on the UX aspects on the solution for the Jisc Research Repository, the overall problem that is being addressed is an international one and has cropped up at workshops in the UK and overseas.
What’s driving discussion is the move towards bringing together files in order to create a research package. These packages might be publications, data and code, all of which may have different licences. The legal implications of what someone can then do with the research package is being addressed by the University of Glasgow in a continuing set of workshops about research data licencing. It is also of concern to the international audience and was a hot topic of conversation in the Legal interoperability group meeting at the recent Research Data Alliance plenary in Philadelphia. …”
