Thank you Suchith,I have not heard that term before but I did run into related term this week at the DDI-CODATA workshop here in Dagstuhl. The term is Data Colonialism. This often happens when a foreign entity (e.g., a development agency/project).e data are collected in a developing country and are taken out of the country. They will leave behind some summary tables but will take the rich data and metadata away. This makes it difficult to develop the data analysis and management skills within the country.
Thanks for the message.
Cheers, Ernie+1-613-290-2804Larrimac: More than a golf course!CODATA: Making data work together to improve science to support decision makers.
