Open data has the potential to improve the governance of universities as
institutions. In addition, open data is likely to increase the quality,
efficacy and
​ ​
efficiency of the research and analysis of higher education systems by
providing a shared empirical base for critical interrogation and
reinterpretation. *Drawing on research conducted by the Emerging Impacts of
Open Data in Developing Countries project, and using an ecosystems
approach, this research paper considers the supply, demand and use of open
data as well as the roles of intermediaries in the governance of South
African public higher education. *
