Open Data in a Big Data World (short accord)

The 2015 edition of Science International has developed an international accord on the values of open data in the emerging scientific culture of big data. The Accord recognises the need for an international framework of principles on “Open Data in a Big Data World” and proposes a comprehensive set of principles. Two versions of the Accord are available for download, a short four-pager giving an overview of the key issues, and a long version desribing in detail a proposed international framework for open data in a big data world.
