Quick wondering. My research is on data re-use. I struggle with what to call the source datasets. I’d like to call them “open data” but they aren’t, necessarily. Sometimes not free, and usually not open in a licensing sense. I’ve been calling them “shared data” which seems ok, but isn’t mainstream and so doesn’t help link the work in to others who are perhaps interested in the same ideas. Publicly-available data? Even more unwieldy.
I’m on the lookout for a better phrase. Let me know if you have any suggestions?
