Track on Knowledge Management for Scholarly Communication/intellectual property

In recent years scholarly communication issues such as open journal publishing, open educational resources, copyright, trademark… have manifested when dealing with data. Various types of data are submitted to electronic repositories each year. Many specific questions arise such as is my data copyrighted? Who may use my data? Does one need permission to use data stored in a repository? What other intellectual property rights surface when data is submitted, stored, outputted in a repository? What licenses are available to protect and disseminate my data? How does open publishing and open educational resources affect data and intellectual property rights? To navigate this new and ever-evolving scholarly communication ecosystem, the track on big data in Libraries will focus on the following broader area:

Licenses and big data
Copyright, trademark, and other IP issues and data
Embargoes and big data
Scholarly publishing and big data
Open educational resources and big data
Uses and permissions relating to big data
Grant funded big data and licenses
