Overall, open science requires a balance between open access to scientific information and protecting the rights of creators. By understanding the differences between copyrights, trademarks, patents, and open source licenses, open science can be supported in a way that encourages open access while also protecting the rights of creators. By following these guidelines, open science can be supported in a way that is beneficial to all.
“As open as possible as close as necessary” – the protection of knowledge is important (see also “Open Science and Intellectual Property Rights” by Javier de la Cueva and Eva Méndez). We can support you with your questions around:
Trademarks play an important role in open science. Trademarks help to protect the integrity of scientific work, while also providing incentives and recognition
Copyrights, on the other hand, limit open access to scientific information by granting exclusive rights to creators of works. By understanding the differences between trademarks and copyrights, open science can be supported in a way that protects the right of creators while allowing open access to scientific knowledge.
Patents are an important tool for open science. Patents provide exclusive rights to inventors for a limited period of time, allowing them to benefit from their innovations while also encouraging open access to the discoveries. Patents can help open science by granting exclusive rights over inventions, but they should be carefully regulated to ensure open access to scientific information
According to UNESCO, Open Science fulfills “the human right to share in scientific advancement and its benefit”.
As open science continues to expand and become more widespread, it is critical that human rights be taken into account to ensure that everyone can benefit from open science. This includes open access to data and research, open collaboration opportunities, and open discussion about ethical issues. These initiatives will ensure that open science is accessible to everyone and can be used for the benefit of everyone We offer practical solutions for your “inclusive” Open Science; this includes Diversity-Equity-Inclusion (DEI) solutions.
Data protection is a fundamental right that safeguards the rights and freedoms of data subjects when personal data is processed. The purpose of data protection is to define when and on what conditions personal data can be processed. Processing of personal data and data protection should be described in data management plan. This can be developed by us.
