Data Policy and License

You are free to:

  • Share — copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format
  • Adapt — remix, transform, and build upon the material
       The licensor cannot revoke these freedoms as long as you follow the license terms.

Under the following terms:

  • Attribution You must attribute any public use of the data (and/or database), or works produced from the data, in the manner specified in the license. For any use or redistribution of the data from network repository, or works produced from the data (or datasets), you must make clear to others the license of the database and keep intact any notices on the original database. Works published using data under this license must be appropriately cited following professional and ethical standards for academic citation. Many of the datasets have additional citation requests that can be found on each specific dataset page (e.g., see the Acknowledgements & Citation Policy found on each dataset page). As such, you must honor these requests. This policy supports the notions of reproducible research by allowing others to download the exact data used in experiments and thus reproduce them with ease. You must also attribute network repository using the citation/acknowledgement policy given below. You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.

    What does "Attribute this work" mean?

    The page you came from contained embedded licensing metadata including citiation/reference requests found on each specific dataset page. Doing so will also include metadata on your page so that others can find the original work as well. We also ask that you share your version of the data by uploading the transformed data so that others may benefit from the use of such data as well as supporting reproducible research.

  • ShareAlike — If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you must distribute your contributions under the same license as the original, including the attribution terms specified above and those found on the page(s) of the particular dataset(s) being used.

  • No additional restrictions — You may not apply legal terms or technological measures that legally restrict others from doing anything the license permits.


  • You do not have to comply with the license for elements of the material in the public domain or where your use is permitted by an applicable exception or limitation.
  • No warranties are given. The license may not give you all of the permissions necessary for your intended use. For example, other rights such as publicity, privacy, or moral rights may limit how you use the material.
