An agreement for GBIF Data Publishers regarding data sharing.
The goals and principles of making biodiversity data openly and universally available have been defined in the Memorandum of Understanding on GBIF, paragraph 8. The Participants who have signed the MoU have expressed their willingness to make biodiversity data available through their nodes to foster scientific research development internationally and to support the public use of these data. Data Publishers often participate in several data sharing arrangements at different levels (thematic, community, national, global).
GBIF data sharing should take place within a framework of due attribution. When registering their services with GBIF, the Data Publishers agree to the GBIF Data Sharing Agreement.
