CMS will soon complete its public release of about half of its Run I research grade data (about 2 Pb), accompanied by corresponding MC sets and analysis software. The 7 TeV data have already been released earlier in two steps. In addition to educational applications this allows the generation of scientific papers and results by non-CMS members at the same level as for CMS members, essentially without any limitation for outsiders.
The contribution will address how the CMS data are integrated into the CERN Open Data portal, what are the procedures for data access and interpretation, and how to obtain additional information. Physics analysis and validation examples using these data will also be discussed, and feedback from the scientific community (see also contribution by J. Thaler) will be addressed. Some emphasis will be placed on aspects particularly relevant for the topics of this workshop.
