This paper discusses the problem of lack of clear licensing and
transparency of usage terms and conditions for research metadata. Making
research data connected, discoverable and reusable are the key enablers of
the new data revolution in research. We discuss how the lack of
transparency hinders discovery of research data and make it disconnected
from the publication and other trusted research outcomes. In addition, we
discuss the application of Creative Commons licenses for research metadata,
and provide some examples of the applicability of this approach to
internationally known data infrastructures.
