Kristin Eschenfelder, Andrew Johnson


This paper describes and compares access and use control practices at twenty-two data archives in six areas: Earth and space sciences, chemistry/proteins, ecology, humanities, social studies and human health. It also compares common practices to Open Knowledge Foundation recommendations for open data and open bibliographic data. Finally, it investigates similarities and differences in motivations for controlling access and use across repository types.
