Open Data is a philosophy and practice requiring that certain data
are freely available to everyone, without restrictions from
copyright, patents or other mechanisms of control. It has a similar
ethos to a number of other "Open" movements and communities such as
open source and open access. However these are not logically linked
and many combinations of practice are found. The practice and
ideology itself is well established but the term "Open Data" itself
is recent. Much of the emphasis in this entry is on data from
scientific research and from the data-driven web. In some cases
Open Data may be considered as more properly Open Metadata and
there is not yet a consistent formalisation. This article uses
recent publications and activities to define the scope of the
concept and term.
