It is not possible to publish research data before submission of patent application. The reason for non-disclosure in this case should be explained in the data management plan, the metadata file (which should also be made available in this case) and, if requested by the grant provider, in other documents as appropriate. Any disclosure of research data will be in accordance with patent protection. It is also recommended to consult the patent centre on the matter.
Some repositories may offer an option to increase the capacity per dataset by mutual agreement. Alternatively, such a dataset can be kept on the cloud and made available to a specific interested party by mutual agreement. The reasons for keeping data closed should be properly explained in the data management plan, the metadata file (which should also be made available in this case) and, if requested by the grant provider, in other documents as appropriate.
The embargo is set from the date of publication of the article.
Preprint and postprint can and should be used when the Published version of an article cannot be published in the repository. This is the case if the article is not from an OA journal. It is therefore not so-called Gold Open Access, but it is so-called Green Open Access. If a postprint can be published, we recommend publishing this version because it is the final version with the peer review comments incorporated. The preprint is the original version from the author without any modifications.
The license given for the article is always the license given by the publisher and the journal. For an OA article, you must indicate this license.
We recommend uploading full texts to the repository – it makes the scientific results of the authors and the CTU more visible.
Everything is available from one place.
