Criteria for Evaluating Open BIG Data

We provide selectively curated, high quality, and peer reviewed published data on our platform. We assess relevance of data to be included on our platform according to the following factors:

Focus on unstructured data e.g., social media, sensor, and government data

Applicable for research topics relevant within business, economics, and/or the social sciences

Data and metadata should be openly available and accessible for research purposes

Data should be Findable, Accesible, Interoperable, and Reusable

We prioritize data that has been used in at least one FT-50 article

Degree of intrinsic data quality including accuracy, completeness, consistency, and timeliness of data

Availability of rich metadata and conformity with BERD metadata standards

Well-known & credible sources are preferred

More recent datasets are preferred, yet often cited datasets remain relevant
