The million mark

Martin Rosenbaum | 11:35 UK time, Monday, 27 November 2006

The BBC publication scheme, which contains documents proactively released by the BBC, has just received its millionth page view this year. And just over 500,000 documents have been downloaded from it in the same period.

Publication schemes are a comparatively unknown part of the freedom of information system. Under the FOI Act every public authority has to have a publication scheme detailing the information it releases as a matter of course. They vary from perfunctory ones which are hardly updated to well-maintained and wide-ranging schemes which do contain a lot of new and interesting information.

The Information Commissioner's Office is currently running an initiative to review publication schemes and is seeking comments on how well they work.
