One of the objectives of opening data is the creation of transparency. However, transparency is an ill-defined concept. My PhD thesis aims to help designers, architects and policy-makers develop portals and applications to enable transparency for the diverse society. Literature will be reviewed to understand the concept of transparency and to identify factors that enable and impede transparency. Thereafter, these factors will be refined using case studies resulting in a model showing the main factors influencing transparency in applications (apps). Finally, they will be validated using a survey. The factors can be used to design apps having higher levels of transparency.
