Introduction: Open Data and Africa

Open Data is widely regarded as the greatest challenge in the pursuit of openness in science, given the vastly different data practices – and related ethos and cultures of ownership, curation, storage and dissemination – which characterise each area of research. Initiatives such as OpenAIRE, Elixir and, most recently, the European Open Science Cloud are […]

State records don't indicate which contracts are storm-related, making fund tracking - and spending accountability - nearly impossible. Disaster recovery experts say the lack of transparency in Texas could hinder coordination, encourage fraud and squander an opportunity not only to rebuild after one of the country's costliest natural disasters, but also to mitigate the risks of the next monster storm.
