Genome papers under Creative Commons licenses

Submitted by Bernardo Parrella on Tue, 18/12/2007 - 15:39

Nature magazine has announced that it's going to share all its human genome papers under a Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license.

The genomes themselves are not copyrightable and go into a public database, but the papers -- which are a vital part of the science -- may now be freely copied by any non-commercial publisher.

In particular, the new license chosen by Nature allows non-commercial publishers, however they might be defined, to reuse the pdf and html versions of the paper. Users are free to copy, distribute, transmit and adapt the contribution, provided this is for non-commercial purposes, subject to the same or similar license conditions and due attribution.
