Open Data Study – New Technologies Political power, information and rights issues have been energised in the US and UK by the pioneering introduction of open data. Making information about services, education and other data has been made publicly available on the web in both countries to help improve services and contribute to future economic growth. But can this approach be replicated to support progress in middle-income and developing countries? This paper explores the feasibility of applying a similar approach to open data in middle income and developing countries and identifies the factors behind the success in the US and UK and the pivotal strategies adopted in these contexts which helped bring together civil servants and ‘civic hackers’ to release government data. The report finds that 3 key groups or ‘layers’ were crucial to the successful introduction of open data.

All key stakeholders in the information and research communication worlds are aware that ‘free’ does not mean cost-free. However, free-to-access and free-to-view, with free content availability in models such as ‘freemium offerings’, are among the paths towards global access that we are all now embracing and experimenting with.” Dr David Green, Global Journals Publishing Director
