Viewing by parliamentary affinities between data votes in Brazilian senate

The expansion of citizen participation in the public sphere depends directly on access information on the performance of elected representatives, especially with regard to their voting decisions during their terms. The Information Science can assist in this process, proposing and evaluating models of access to such information that may be obtained from data to be provided by the official websites from legislative, in levels federal, state and municipal.

We proposed in this paper to analyze the process of collecting and using data about votes of senators in order to promote the use of this model in other spheres.

Technological and Data Access Restrictions available about government federal financial budget for public health on digital information environments

The creation and use of democratic environments allow society to participate, even indirectly, in the discussions about services provided by the State. In recent years, discussion of the quality of public health’s services was strengthened by the media. In 2011, access to government data became mandatory with the sanction of the “Law on Access to Information”.

The use of Information Technologies and Communication (ICT) from public administration to society, following the principles of open government data, can promote a condition of interaction between state and society in increasing the transparency of government actions and the citizenship, helping to significantly improve the quality of services, to enabling citizens to use data sets in the construction of graphs and data views, external of the officials government websites, as well as crossing with other data sets.

Mapping Technology term in Information Science papers at Working Group – Technology

The Information and Communication Technologies are more and present-day in scientific production, which is due to technological progress and intensive use of available technologies.

The goal is to provide the scientific community with a mapping of the term technology and its derivations in journals of Information Science (IS), indexed in Web of Science (WOS), classified for WebQualis 2013 and available on Portal of Journals CAPES.

The build of access points to Government’s Datasets based on a Multidimensional Model

Environments for access to government data, via Information Technologies and Communications, may expand possibilities for citizen monitoring, providing feedback for future demands.

The objective of this study is to present a proposal for a multidimensional model that allows the creation of different access points to unique government’s data set, using the Data Warehouse concept, anticipating future data access demands.
