New (and old) licenses are here!

by Alex Ioannidis on November 22, 2018


Today, we're pleased to announce the extension of the available selection of licenses that you can apply to your Zenodo uploads. The extra licenses include older and newer versions of existing licenses, as well as completely new entries.

New licenses

Our database now contains more than 400 licenses that you can search for and select when you create your upload. All these new licenses are coming from SPDX.org, which we have added as another one of the sources we harvest for licenses metadata.

If you are interested in getting a machine-readable extensive list of all the licenses you can do so by accessing our Licenses REST API. If you cannot find the license you want for your new upload, please drop us a message via our support form.
