2015 (English)In: CeDEM 2015: Proceedings of the International Conference for E-Democracy and Open Government 2015 / [ed] P. Parycek & N. Edelmann, Krems: Edition Donau-Universität Krems , 2015, 197-208 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Little is known about the factors which influence the success or failure of open data initiatives. Based on the results of a workshop, we provide a list of success factors for open data publication and use (64 in total) and discuss their criticality in a particular setting using a case study (the ENGAGE project). The most critical success factors for open data publication and use, in the context of this case study, related to legislation, regulation and licenses. However,the criticality of factors depends considerably on the context of the open data initiative. Our key conclusions are that further work is needed to detail the success factors for open data publication and use in particular contexts, and that a number of success factors, such as those related to sustainability of publication process and user feedback, appear to be more universally applicable than others.
