Legacies of Legalese - a Barrier to FAIR Data Standards

The LTER program data policy allows data providers to designate custom intellectual rights. Current LTER custom rights declarations vary widely, ranging from requiring a data citation to requiring users to send hard copies of manuscripts to the point of contact to expecting users to include data providers as contributing coauthors to any manuscripts that use that data. Particularly when the lead investigators change over time, or when an originating data provider is no longer active or alive, such clauses prevent data use and reuse. Efforts to synthesize data across sites are made extremely cumbersome as the number and variety of custom intellectual rights clauses compound. In this workshop, we hope to discuss and refine a set of recommendations for achieving FAIR data standards that ensure the maximum potential use of LTER datasets, while ensuring that data providers are credited appropriately by all downstream users.
