It feels like there are just too many opendata reports being published at the moment to know which ones to read? They do potentially provide lots of possible content for structured reading exercises in an (open) data course though….?
Here’s a list of some the reports I’ve noticed recently, and that I haven’t really had time to read and digest properly:-(
- Open Data White Paper: Unleashing the Potential (Cabinet Office, June 2012)
- Implementing transparency (National Audit Office (NAO), April 2012)
- Report on Using Open Data: policy modeling, citizen empowerment, data journalism (W3C, June 2012)
- The Data Dividend (Demos, March 2012)
- The Big Data Opportunity: Making government faster, smarter and more personal (Policy Exchange/lobbiests, July 2012)
- Open data and charities: a state of the art review (Nominet Trust, July 2012)
- Open data dialogue final report (RCUK, June 2012)
- Open Data in Cultural Heritage Institutions (EPSI Platform, May 2012)
- Open Aid Data (EPSI Platform, May 2012)
Whilst not specifically about open data, these are also related to whole data and openness thang:
- Defining and defending consumer interests in the digital age (Ctrl-Shift/Consumer Focus, June 2012)
- #Intelligence (Demos, May 2012)
- Data Jujitsu: The art of turning data into product (O’Reilly, July 2012)
- Science as an open enterprise (Royal Society, June 2012)
UK Gov Departments also published their open data strategies – they’re linked to from here: UK Gov Departmental Open Data Strategies.
PS I’m not sure if an English translation of this report (in Dutch) on Internal Business Models for Open Government Data is available anywhere?
