Abstract

Open Government Data (OGD) has been growing as a field of research in digital government. Using a systematic review method, this paper sought to capture the status of research in OGD over the last five years from 2012-2018. The key findings indicate that OGD is an emergent research area with no existing theoretical frameworks. The absence of design science methods suggests an opportunity to create digital government platforms based on OGD best practices. There are also strong legal concerns concerning the opening up of government data, the format of the data, and the privacy / security implications of such exposure. There is limited research on OGD for business benefit nor developing countries. We highlight some gaps for further research and identify potential opportunities.
