Science Commons

November 15th, 2004 by Ross Scaife

Neel Smith just alerted me to Science Commons, a new project of Creative Commons set to launch on January 1, 2005:

The mission of Science Commons is to encourage scientific innovation by making it easier for scientists, universities, and industries to use literature, data, and other scientific intellectual property and to share their knowledge with others. Science Commons works within current copyright and patent law to promote legal and technical mechanisms that remove barriers to sharing.
