Making data available to public

If you like to make your grid data available to the public you can use ZENODO. ZENODO is an archive allowing researchers to publish data and receive a digital object identifier (DOI), so your data will be citable like any other publication. This will help to make grid research reproducible. You can define the terms of use for your data by any licensing model.
