Description/Abstract

This paper examines the process of adoption of ‘Linked Open Data’ within the UK Open Public Sector Community. We use a social science approach – Actor Network Theory (ANT) – as an analytical framework which enables us to explore the formation and stabilisation of networks of actors. The analysis details the actors involved within the PSI community, examining their interrelations and interactions. We conclude with some remarks regarding the barriers and enablers within the network, and discuss the potential analysis of other Open Government data initiatives based on our approach.
