Non-discrimination principle

A principle of the OD Directive and PSI Directive requiring that any applicable conditions for the re-use of documents are non-discriminatory for comparable categories of re-use, including for cross-border re-use, and limiting the possibilities of exclusive rights. 

Non-commercial

A restriction, as part of a licence, that content cannot be freely re-used for ‘commercial’ purposes. Content or data subject to a non-commercial restriction is not open, according to the Open Definition. Such a restriction reduces economic value and causes problems with licence mixing, as well as often ruling out more than is intended (for example, it is often unclear whether educational uses are ‘commercial’).

No rights reserved (CC 0)

NGO

Non-governmental organisation. NGOs are voluntary, non-profit organisations focussing on charitable work, community-building, campaigning, research, etc, making up a vital part of civil society.

MDR (Metadata Registry)

The Metadata Registry is an important interoperability and standardisation tool. It registers and maintains definition data (metadata elements, named authority lists, schemas, etc.) used by the different EU institutions.

Metadata

Metadata is structured information that describes, explains, locates or otherwise makes it easier to retrieve, use or manage an information resource. Metadata is often called data about data.

Marginal cost

The additional cost incurred by supplying a single copy of a resource, e.g. data. For data to be open according to the Open Definition, it must be charged for at no more than marginal cost. Where data is available for download over the internet the marginal cost will usually be zero. There may be a small marginal cost in exceptional cases, e.g. if for reasons of size the data needs to be put on a disk and posted.

Many eyes principle

If something is visible to many people then, collectively, they are more likely to find errors in it. Publishing open data can therefore be a way to improve its accuracy and data quality, especially where a good interface for reporting errors is provided. See → crowdsourcing.

Mashup

The combination of multiple datasets from multiple sources to create a new service or visualisation or new information.

Machine-Readable (File or Data or Format)

Data in a data format that can be easily automatically read and processed (or identified, recognized and extracted) by a computer, without human intervention, including individual statements of fact, and their internal structure, while ensuring no semantic meaning is lost. Examples of file formats are CSV, JSON, XML, etc. Machine-readable data must be structured data. 

Enabling a user-driven, sustainable and fair open data ecosystem through interdisciplinary research and education.
