Maria, all, I would slightly disagree here, because I think all data can be of various degrees of quality and freshness. Maria, I can re-read your entire message with '(any) data' instead if 'open data' and it makes much more sense to me. Commercial data, paid data, authoritative data, open data, VGI data: you always need to assess if they are fit for (your) purpose. Your proposal "Methods and FOSS tools for assessing open data quality" could convey the false message that only open data needs checking and has inherent flaws.
On a side note, in the definition aspect, I would take care of splitting: - 'good' open data: data released by producer, that anyone can read or re-use (for transparency, accountability and public participation, support technological innovation and economic growth, new kinds of digital applications and services, ...) - 'bad' open data: labelled 'open data' by the producer, but lacking in: poor format (not structured, proprietary ...), poor quality (data, metadata, up-to-date, completeness ...), poor access (not searchable, not documented, fee, ...) ... - 'more than' open data: people can read AND write, re-use AND contribute, assess AND improve; this is more free/libre. This is OpenStreetMap for generic geodata, other VGI for thematic data ... Best regards.
