Alongside the 3rd International Open Government Data Conference in Ottawa, on May 27th 2015, the Open Data Research Network will host a one day academic workshop, consisting of a series of paper presentations and discussion panels. Submissions of extended abstracts are invited from all disciplines by 28th Feb 2015.
This paper intends to tackle some of the methodological challenges through building evidence base that can empower further generalizations in the open government field; as well as developing a methodological framework to unpack theories of change and to evaluate the social impact of open data and digital transparency initiatives. Assessing impact means we should be able to prove if there has.It is a concept for a collaborative project in the municipal Government to create and organize culture for Open Data or Open government data. Additionally, other levels of government have established open data websites. There are many government entities pursuing Open Data in Canada.

In the absence of cross-country empirical research on this topic, this paper asks the following: Based on the evidence available, to what extent and for what reasons is the use of open government data associated with higher levels of accountability and improved service delivery in developing countries? To answer this question, the paper constructs a unique data set that operationalizes open.
Open data: The researcher perspective. The Open Data report is a result of a year-long, co-conducted study between Elsevier and the Centre for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS), part of Leiden University, the Netherlands. The study is based on a complementary methods approach consisting of a quantitative analysis of bibliometric and publication data, a global survey of 1,200 researchers.
You can use this data to learn more about how government works, carry out research or build applications and services’. 7 It makes a symbolic claim about providing access to raw data that drives government. 8 Of course, it is unlikely that the online data repository contains all the open data published by government bodies as it relies on the diligence of local data custodians to publish.
This paper is one of a series of four Briefing Papers on key issues in the use of open government data. The U.S. federal government, like many governments around the world, now releases “open data” that can help citizens investigate better value for college, fair housing, and safer medicines, and has a wide range of other potential public.
Open Research Data Online (ORDO) is The Open University's research data repository. Based upon the Figshare platform, ORDO can be used for the storage of live research data, but is particularly useful for archiving and publishing research data supporting a publication or once a project is completed. Data stored in ORDO will be kept for a minimum of ten years after project completion; published.

This paper examines a sample of these data sets as well as some of the applications that have been developed from them and uses a conceptual model developed by Yu and Robinson (2012) in the US. The model provides a basis for determining the technical characteristics of the data (is it adaptable or inert) as well as the primary purpose of the data (is it to improve service delivery or public.
Briefing Paper on Open Data and Data Quality This paper is one in a series of four Briefing Papers on key issues in the use of open government data. The U.S. federal government, like many governments around the world, releases “open data” that can help the public find better value in education, fair housing, and safer medicines, and has a wide range of other social and economic benefits.
The OPEN Government Data Act lays out a vision for well-managed, high quality, accessible, and useful government data. If successful, its implementation can build on lessons learned from previous efforts by expanding the scope of open government data, improving its management, and empowering those that want to make use of it both inside and outside the federal government. Luckily, steps are.

Since this problem is subject to active work in multiple open-data-related projects, UK Government data can be found on platforms other than data.gov.uk, sometimes in a better shape, where users can download it alongside data from other sources. For example, UK Data Service addresses the needs of research users by offering surveys, studies and other relevant data, including surveys and.
Barriers to the open government data agenda: taking a multi-level perspective 1 Barriers to the open government data agenda: taking a multi-level perspective Abstract: A loose coalition of advocates for Open Government Data (OGD) argue that such data has the potential to have a transformative impact by catalysing innovation across sectors of the economy and by fostering democratic.
Research Summary About This is an edited version of an MSc Dissertation exploring the use of open government data (OGD) from data.gov.uk: taking a theoretical and empirical look at who is using OGD, how it is being used, and what possible implications that has for different models of democratic change and public sector reform. The underlying study adopted a pragmatic mixed-method research.
