Choose an embargo period for your data
Before making your data accessible for researchers and/or general public, you may want to define an embargo period. An embargo period is a limited period of time after which your data will be available. In many cases, this embargo period is stated in your consortium agreement, funders’ contract, patent, etc. There might be several reason for delaying your data release (having a period of time during which only you and your partners might publish using your data, for example).
Consider how long your embargo period will last (if any) and state a clear release (date). Communicate this embargo period with the repository you chose.
