Copyrights, licenses, and access restrictions
Can I deposit in the SDR and still publish my work elsewhere or apply for a patent?
Yes, but we recommend that in these situations you choose the embargo option, which allows your work to be preserved now but released automatically to the public at a later date, after you've published elsewhere or applied for a patent. Options for embargos may differ depending on the content and the application used to deposit your work, so please check the documentation for the application you are using or contact us.
Can I deposit data containing sensitive information, such as patient records, student records, or financial information?
High Risk Data must be anonymized, masked or cleansed before deposit in SDR. Data classified as Low Risk or Moderate Risk can be deposited in SDR.
