Digital Science Releases Global Research Identifier Database Under CC0 License

December 5th 2016: “Digital Science, a leading technology company serving the needs of scientific and research communities announced  today that the Global Research Identifier Database (GRID) dataset will be made available under a CC0 license allowing users to make full use of the database releases with no need for attribution. The CC0 license means that others may freely build upon, enhance and reuse GRID data for any purposes, without restriction under copyright or database law, similar to many open source software licenses. The CC0 license removes any hurdles associated with the current license. Digital Science hopes that the open data community can benefit from using GRID, allowing seamless integrations with other open datasets and software tools. GRID is a free, easy-to-use online database that opens up information about research organizations around the world to data scientists, developers and innovators within academic and commercial organizations. The GRID dataset addresses the problem of messy and inconsistent data on research institutions, ensuring that each entity is included correctly and only once.”
