Case-studies: open data

Nature Publishing Group (NPG) produces leading scientific journal, Nature, and is part of the global Macmillan Publishing Group. The Group was keen to offer linked data to third parties and asked TSO to help implement this.

The Gazettes are complex publications with over 5,000 customers placing more than 200,000 notices each year and TSO has worked closely with The National Archives to introduce a sophisticated electronic processing system, conforming to the e-government priority of opening up public data.

The National Archives’ Legislation.gov.uk service was created in partnership with TSO to be the world’s first state legislative records service published online, and available in multiple formats, using Open Data standards.
