As part of my research on data journalism, I am currently investigating
the issue of public sector open data quality, and more specifically
about enhancing their quality through their re-use, namely by
journalists, their associates or their audience.
Could you tell me if, inside of your editorial board, you have conducted
projects based on, or involving the use of open data, and, through your
work, contributed to:
- Improve the documentation of any data set,
- Report/correct errors inside any data set,
- Co-produce new data in collaboration with public services,
either as part of a partnership with a data provider, or by downloading
openly available data on the web.
All options might include using or even developping tools to this end,
such as wikis, crowdsourcing platforms, etc.
I would be most thankful for documented examples of any related work you
With my best thanks for your attention to my request, and for anything
you can do to help me in my endeavour to create quality documentation
about this topic.
Please feel free to forward this mail to any connections if you deem it
