Some open data basics

Why open data?  

As the Australian National Data Service (ANDS) notes

'Research is producing larger and more complex data than ever before.  It is imperative that these data outputs are effectively managed and shared.'

What is open data?

The Open Knowledge Foundation gives the following general definition to open data:

'A piece of data or content is open if anyone is free to use, reuse, and redistribute it- subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and/or share-alike.'

For the full definition, see Open Knowledge Foundation Open Definition.

How do I find out if data is open?

Start by looking on the publisher's website for their terms and conditions for data usage.

For information on open knowledge licenses which may be applied to data see the Open Knowledge Foundation's page on licenses for open data .

How do I share my data?

The Open Knowledge Foundation's steps for opening up data and Making your Data Open: A Guide offer some guidance on sharing your research data.
