OpenAIRE organizes a workshop on ‘Impact and Measurement of Open Access’, in collaboration with CRIStin, hosted by HiOA in Oslo – Norway on Tuesday the 14th of February 2017.
This workshop aims to explore how open access can be measured and what tools are developed to monitor the transition to more open research.
The work on international standardisation of statistics and indicators for measuring Open Access is still in its early stages of development. As more funder policies require research output to be publicly available; researchers, research managers and publishers are increasingly interested in the effects Open Access can have on their results. The same goes for mapping and measuring the impact of Open Access on both the research community and society at large. Aiming to make a contribution towards determining the current state of affairs, the OpenAIRE workshop “Impact and Measurement of Open Access” hope to provide both meaningful insights and a valuable meeting place.
How can researchers determine the effects of their research with more accuracy than just the impact factor of a journal? And how can they demonstrate that their research outputs have reached and influenced their colleagues and society at large? Policy makers also have a stake in knowing the extent to which their policies are met and what effects the implementation might have. Without indicators for measuring Open Access it is difficult for funders to assess the extent of compliance and to determine what impact their policies have.
Among the invited speakers are Crossref, the European Research Council (ERC), Knowledge Exchange and many others. One aim of the workshop is to bring together a wide variety of stakeholder groups. E.g. research performing institutions, funders, publishers, research administrators, infrastructure providers, etc.
The workshop will be filmed and streamed. The Link will be provided via the workshops website wich you can access – along with the full agenda and the registration link – here.
