By using DCAT, everyone can easily find and search across all the datasets published in some country in a unified way which can be important on different levels: (i) it can be used by citizens or enterprises to facilitate the discovery of public services and information; (ii) it provides public administrations with a comprehensive platform through which sharing best practices on services, and building a community; and (iii) it can be used in order to follow the degree of standardization and digitalization of the services of the public sector. Based on specification and also a recommendation from some countries which use DCAT-AP, DCAT-AP for Serbia (DCAT-AP-SRB) is proposed.
