Do you have data, casts, or services that you want to share? Libre, in partnership with the Polar Information Commons (PIC), works to foster data sharing to help you address the interconnected problems that characterize today's global and systemic research using the Polar Information Commons Rights and Badging Tool.
Ultimately the PIC is:
So how do you clearly communicate to others that your data are available for reuse and that you expect ethical and appropriate use of your data? We have created a tool that makes it simple to declare your data open for broad use while asserting that such data should be used according to the Ethical Norms of Data Sharing developed by the polar science community. This tool provides you with a badge to display on your Web pages and in your data documentation that conveys your wishes in a way readily understood by both people and data systems.
You can automate the features of the PIC Rights and Badging Tool for all your data by using the PIC Rights & Badging Application Programming Interface (API).
