Open Data Share Project
Knowledge is Power. However, often development practitioners often suffer from lack of data that can help make them make informed decisions in real time., or rather quality data. Researchers usually do not share their raw data till its being published. At the Devcafe we encourage open data sharing and through our journal we make sure we are able to publish the papers so that our authors can freely share their data with anyone who can benefit from it.
There are many advantages that we think are useful in open data share
- Quality for Data, because its shared publicly there is greater transparency, robustness and accountability and ability to cross check
- Encourages new ideas of research collaboration and diverse use of the data, eg. household survey among farmers in India, can be used from a gender perspective by a gender expert, eventhough it may not have been originally intended.
