Canadensys norms for data use and publication
This repository contains the norms for data use and publication, developed and used by Canadensys, a network of Canadian biological collections. The norms are published at http://www.canadensys.net/norms.
These norms are not a legal document, but encourage (our) publishers and users to share and use data in a way that helps to build a vibrant community around the data and support future efforts to unlock biodiversity data.
By hosting these norms on Github in Markdown format, we can keep track of their revision history and hope to encourage others to fork and adapt them for their own needs. We'd love to see more communities working with open data and we hope these norms can help you to build those.
