The OECD has launched the second pilot of the International Survey of Scientific Authors (ISSA2). This survey aims to collect statistical evidence on the use of digital tools for science and on their impact on different scientific activities.
This study is part of the broader OECD Going Digital project to analyse the impact of digitalisation on the economy and society. The project benefts from the input of a steering group, which comprises policy and statistical officials as well as independent experts from Argentina, Brazil, France, Germany, Japan, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and the United States.
Data collection for this study is currently ongoing. Initial results are expected to be disseminated in the first quarter of 2019.
The first pilot of ISSA aimed at informing policy-relevant questions on the subject of open access to publications and research outcomes and the potential implications of open science. Download the policy paper from 2016.
