Assign a license


All SPARC datasets must have the following metadata: subtitle, description, banner image, license, and tags. This interface allows you to easily assign the Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY 4.0) license to your dataset, which is mandatory for all SPARC datasets.

How to

To access this interface click on the Free Form Mode side bar option, then click on the Manage Datasets tab, and finally click on the Assign a license card.

  1. Select/confirm your Pennsieve account and dataset. If you have not connected your Pennsieve account with SODA yet, use the instructions available here.
  2. Click on Assign Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) license. This button will only be visible if the CC-BY 4.0 license is not already assigned, otherwise you will see "Creative Commons Attribution" mentioned under "Current License" and you don't need to do anything else.
