Step 6: Organize Governance
When publishing Linked (open) data it is of utmost importance to not only think of the technical aspects described in this roadmap but also take governance aspects into account. Things like a licensing structure, how maintenance will be deployed and other governance aspects need to be thought of and agreed upon before the data is published. We will not cover these issues in this roadmap but refer to the booklet about BOMOD which is published together with this roadmap. Organizing governance will be a step that takes a lot of throughput time, as it involves agreement with the involved stakeholders. Therefore, it is important to start early on in the data publication process and do this step in parallel with the other steps.
