Government open data is a booster for government performance, transparency, and innovation. The purpose of this study to investigate how researchers use Dubai open data on Dubai Pulse platform, Using Dubai open data for Knowledge and Human Development Authority in Dubai (KHDA) shows was not covered by academic researchers. To find the reasons behind that, a systematic review were conducted for all published papers and academic researchs in the period of 2015 until 2019. 68 articles were identified, but only 38 articels passed the including/excluding criteria, and considered within this study. The majority of researchers focus mainly on detailed students’ datasets. on the other hand the published KHDA open dataset provide many usefull datasets but it’s not including detailed students datasets; a gap between the required datasets by researchers and what KHDA open dataset provide is found. Therefore, to bridge the gap and improve researches in educational domain, KHDA needs to provide more students’ details that supports machine-readable format to become useful and usable for researchers.
