This time we have been working with guest editors Johann Hoechtl, Tim Davies, Marijn Janssen and Ina Schieferdecker on the topic “Open Data”, a field of studies that has, during the recent years, been “growing up and getting specific”.


Special Issue on Open Data including Invited Papers from the SharePSI project

This special issue contains a variety of research papers addressing this topic from different views and providing recent research results. The papers in this issue deepen the understanding of open data and show that the subject of open data is moving from the general to the study of specifics.
