This report is about registers or lists, and ways of publishing and maintaining them. We examine models of stewarding registers and review case studies of different registers. We argue that transparency is necessary, and collaboration desirable, in managing registers that are trusted by their users.
This report has been researched and produced by the Open Data Institute, and published in May 2018. Its lead authors were David Miller and Sym Roe. If you want to share feedback by email or would like to get in touch, contact the Registers project lead Leigh Dodds at Leigh.Dodds@theodi.org.
