January Highlights: New Research and Findings on OGRX

January 24, 2017 by Andrew Young

The Open Governance Research Exchange (OGRX) strives to identify and curate the most useful and important research on innovations in governance. Through the research efforts of OGRX’s editorial board and partners, and, especially, submissions from OGRX users, the platform is constantly growing and evolving, with new publications added each week.

Some pieces reflective of the diversity of newly added research and findings come from PLOS One, Big Data & Society, the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, Philosophy & Technology, and Current Anthropology, focusing on Citizen Engagement and Crowdsourcing, Big Data, Citizen Science, Social Media, and Data Collaboratives.

Come back often to stay on top of what’s new in governance innovation!
