In this brief paper published in Folia Forestalia Polonica, Series A – Forestry, Dorota Grygoruk of Poland's Forest Research Institute presents the development of the open data concept within the context of Poland and other countries, while also addressing how data sharing and management is challenged by the paradigm. Grygoruk first defines the open data and open access concepts and then describes how policy in Poland and the European Union has been adopted to specify those concepts within institutions. The author then analyzes the challenges of implementing data sharing inherent to research data management, including within the context of forestry informatics. The conclusion? The "organizational and technological solutions that enable analysis" are increasingly vital, and " it becomes necessary for research institutions to implement data management policies," including data sharing policies.
