Open Economics Principles

With the recognition that

Economic research is based on building on, reusing and openly criticising the published body of economic knowledge [and that] […] empirical economic research and data play a central role for policy-making in many important areas of our economies and societies […]

the Open Economics Working Group of the Open Knowledge Foundation has introduced the Open Economics Principles.

The Open Economics Principles promote openess in economic research by making economic research results, data and analysis be made openly and freely available (wherever possible).

Go to the website of the Open Economics Working Group to learn more about the Open Economics Principles. And endorse them! (as a first step before making your data available)
