The free and unrestricted acces to research contributions and data is a prerequisite for numerous aspects of digital research and thus a central component of digital infrastructure, such as DARIAH-DE.

For publications, unless adopted by third parties, DARIAH-DE uses a Creative Commons BY (CC BY) licence, including Open Educational Resources.

For database products the use of Open Data Commons is preferred.

Open Source

The software components and tools developed within DARIAH-DE are published under free and open sources licences.
All code will be made available via the website and, where appropriate, published on platforms such as GitHub.
The licences used are subject to the conditions of libraries and dependencies involved.
Where possible, Apache 2.0 is preferred.

DARIAH-DE supports the recommendations to encourage best practices in research software.
