Code of Conduct and IPR

For further papers, we will adopt the same data policies as used in other global networks (ILTER, NutNet, Drought-Net etc.) and follow the Vancouver guidelines. This means that site data can be used by others without automatically leading to co-authorship rights accepting that co-authorship requires academic and scientific input that is not fulfilled by contributing data alone. Further co-authorship rights therefore require more substantial inputs than just the data.
