Kristi Winters writes in her blog post about the use of Creative Commons Licences for study documentation. Copyright and Open Science are two research poles that seem to be diametrically opposed to each other. However, the author shows an uncomplicated way of protecting one's own intellectual property from misuse, while still making one's own research freely available to others. Creative Commons licenses encourage reuse and denote how the public can legally use, cite, reuse or reproduce the scholarly writing.
