Compilation of Recommendations


Short Title

Action 17.5: For data created by publicly funded research projects, initiatives and infrastructures, and where action 17.4 does not apply, the default should be to make the data available as soon as possible. However, policies may explicitly allow a reasonable embargo period to facilitate the right of first use of the data creators. Embargoes should be short (e.g. c. six months to two years) based on the prevailing culture in the given research community.
