Are there approaches and metrics/indicators that effectively measure the network effects of the use of PSI online? 4- What still needs to be known about the application of these methods to the evaluation of public information policies in the online environment? 5- What theoretical frameworks, models and best practices in other areas can be applied to assess different policies of access to and reuse of digital PSI? 6- What are some future directions and recommendations for the better study and measurement of access to and reuse of PSI online? â¢ Following the break, the main points from the panel discussions will be summarized by the rapporteurs (Juan Carlos de Martin and Tilman Merz), followed by discussion.
