Objectives: As data opening becomes more common, assessment model and index designed to measure the concept and outcome of open data have been continuously upgraded. Methods/Statistical Analysis: For open-data assessment index development modeling, the Open Knowledge Foundation’s open definition and the Obama Administration’s definition of ‘open data’ were basically adopted. In particular, the model was designed with the open-data attributes of the Obama Administration which has systematically suggested open data in the most specific manner including the OKF’s definition as the important scale of the basic model. Findings: This study attempted to propose assessment indexes which can measure outcome by applying them to science and technology open data provided by the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI) after reviewing current leading assessment models and indexes as well as definition of open data. The purpose of this study is to reconfigure open-data assessment which has been performed on government data with new assessment model and index which are applicable to the science and technology open data provided by the KISTI. In terms of a scope of assessment index development for outcome measurement, this study was performed against science and technology open data which have been provided in a liked open data format by the KISTI. The results would be directly used or referred to in the assessment of open data services by the government agency or information center which has managed open data as well as the KISTI. Improvements/Applications: The results would be directly used or referred to in the assessment of open data services by the government agency or information center which has managed open data.
