Creative Commons Licenses

For first releases on TORE you can use Creative Commons licenses. You can define the conditions for the subsequent use of your work here according to the modular principle.

CC BY (Attribution) is actually ideal for science. Apart from exceptional cases, you will not receive any money even with conventional publications, but usually you are interested in the widest possible dissemination of your research results and in them being associated with your name. CC BY ensures both. On the one hand, publications may be distributed and texts and images from them used in lectures, courses, popular science media etc. without further permission, and on the other hand you and your co-authors must be named in the form you require.
