Community of Practice on Open Science and Responsible Research Assessment

Next online event coming up on

More traditional, publication-driven assessments of research(ers) are running out of steam. Multiple initiatives are promoting responsible assessments of research and researchers. Simultaneously, a movement that incentivises open scientific practices is developing and gaining footing on European and national levels. These two movements have a unique opportunity to strengthen and reinforce one another. Research assessment reform can provide a big boost to the adoption of Open Science, and the transparency offered by Open Science can serve as a key enabler for assessment reform.

In bimonthly sessions, facilitated by the Centre for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS) at Leiden University (NL), we ask: How can research assessment consider Open Science and vice versa? What does Open Science translate to in research practice?

 

20 March 2024 - 10:00-11:00 CET

We will soon provide additional information on this session here.

About the series

In bimonthly conversations, research funders, research managers, researchers and anyone interested in these topics come together to discuss the multiple ways in which research assessment considers Open Science. Our guests tell stories about issues, frustrations and the successes of research assessment in relation to Open Science. The goal of this community is to create a bouquet of stories of translation from which we can learn and draw inspiration for our own research assessments.

Past sessions

17 January 2024. Fotis Mystakopoulos from OPERAS reflected on the role Open Science can play in fostering a more inclusive research assessment process that prioritises quality over quantity in the Social Sciences and Humanities. The materials from this session are available here

18 October 2023. Ludo Waltman from CWTS discussed the complexities that he has already encountered at the interface of responsible research assessment and Open Science. Check out his presentation, available here
