Linked Open Government Data Research Panorama

Bernardo Todesco, Bruno Blume, Airton Zancanaro, José Leomar Todesco, Fernando Gauthier


In order to increase transparency and civic participation, governments around the world sought ways to open their data and allow both to itself as to companies and the civil population a greater share in the maintenance, surveillance and optimization of the services provided. To this end, using a technology called linked data (LD), the data released by governments became easier to be understood and properly used by humans and machines alike, thus creating what today is called linked open government data (LOGD). The purpose of this article is to present the state of art of the research in LOGD through bibliometric research, ultimately presenting a feedback on the matter.
