Professor in ICT & Governance and head of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
Delft University of Technology
We are very happy to announce that Vol. 6 No. 1 (2014) of JeDEM, the eJournal of E-Democracy and Open Government, has just been published. 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. The special issue also includes invited papers presented at the first public meeting of the SharePSI project. Share-PSI 2.0 is the European network for the exchange of experience and ideas around implementing open data policies in the public sector.
