Copyright and data protection law around research data management




About the project

The "DMLawTool" (Data Management Law Tool) answers questions about copyright and data protection law relating to research data management.

It is aimed in particular at researchers in the humanities and social sciences. The "DMLawTool" is structured as a decision tree with a search function and chatbot. The respective nodes are each comprehensively explained thematically, including: License selection, open access, Creative Commons licenses, anonymization and pseudonymization, and the handling of personal and sensitive data.
