Open Science in (digital) legal spaces: Sources, resources, contact points

Researchers who would like to open up their work have to be aware of several areas of legislation that define possibilities and boundaries of openness. Below, you will find an introduction to the legal areas most vital and relevant to open research as well as a collection of resources that can provide answers to practical legal questions and problems (mainly from an Austrian perspective).

This collection only serves as an orientation. If you require authoritative legal advice, please contact your institution’s legal department or a qualified lawyer.
