Panton Principles for Open Data in Science

"Science is based on building on, reusing and openly criticising the published body of scientific knowledge.
For science to effectively function, and for society to reap the full benefits from scientific endeavours, it is crucial that science data be made open."

This is the initial statement launching a new initiative, The Panton Principles, authored by Peter Murray-Rust, Cameron Neylon, Rufus Pollock and John Wilbanks at the Panton Arms on Panton Street in Cambridge, UK - with input from the Working Group on Open Data in Science.

Everybody is encouraged to read and endorse the principles, whose conclusion is quite simple: "Data related to published science should be explicitly placed in the public domain".
