Springer Journals Get New Creative Commons License

Beginning Feb. 3, 2014, a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) license will apply to journals from BioMed Central, Chemistry Central, and SpringerOpen, which are all part of Springer Science+Business Media. Many open access (OA) articles published in Springer’s subscription-based journals will also fall under the new license.

BioMed Central and Chemistry Central works will be available under a combined license for published articles and a Creative Commons CC0 waiver for published data such as tables and other supplements. All SpringerOpen content will fall under CC BY 4.0.

According to CC BY 4.0, users may “copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format” and “remix, transform, and build upon the material for any purpose, even commercially.” Authors have a simplified attribution requirement and the license applies to digital materials. Users include international governments and publishers of public sector information.
