At the moment, a dataset added to our repository is given a default CC0 licence. If another licence is requested, I can choose from a list of about 10 options. But what if the licensing agreement does not fit any of them?
An "other" or "custom" option (where we could insert a link to the exact licensing agreement) would be really useful.
Kay will respond to you directly. We do support this for figshare for institutions.
Hello and thanks for the suggestion
We won't be adding an "other" or "custom" option to the licence options, but you can add any licence to your licence list as long as there is a URL to point to, which describes the licence conditions.
If you'd like to add a licence to your licence list, you can lodge a ticket on our support site to have it configured: support.figshare.com
Hope that helps?
