Abstract

The importance of adopting an international approach to information access and re-use has long been recognised, whether the focus is on science research data, environmental data, spatial information or other kinds of information produced with public funding. During the past decade, a growing realisation of the nature and magnitude of the environmental, social and economic issues confronting the global community has been accompanied by an increased awareness of the importance of ensuring the flow of information and knowledge produced by the public sector or with public funding. Developments in the international arena evidence an understanding that the challenges being faced can only be effectively addressed at the global level, through closer international cooperation, and that they require clear commitments to information access and reuse.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
