Open Content Licenses

Open Content Licenses are standardised contracts which define the conditions for publications' reuse by the copyright holder. The goal of these licenses is to allow for wider dissemination, distributions and usage of publications ensuring copyright is not limited in any way.

The standard licenses regularly used in science and research for defining term of use for publications, are: the Creative Commons Licenses    (CC) and the Digital Peer Publishing License    (DPPL). Prerequisites for using these are that copyright of a work, for which the creator has the comprehensive right of use, has not been already given to, for instance, a publisher.
