DUO (Data Use Ontology) and DataCite metadata schema 4.4

We are investigating the use of DUO (Data Use Ontology) to explicitly state permitted uses of research data when there isn’t a “simple” open licence e.g. CC BY.

Would it be reasonable to use this in field 16 Rights? Something like this:

16 Rights: population origins/ancestry research
16.a rightsURI: http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/DUO_0000011
16.b rightsIdentifier: DUO_0000011
16.c rightsIdentifierScheme: DUO
16.d schemeURI: http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/duo.owl

This looks good to me!

I think it was just automatically formatted on your post, but for rightsURI, I would use the PURL http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/DUO_00000044 :slight_smile:

Thanks, Kelly. You’re right - Discourse was being “helpful” so I’ve edited my post to use preformatted text.
