Workshop Report and Presentations: Research Policy Monitoring in the Era of Open Science and Big Data
The “Research Policy Monitoring in the Era of Open Science and Big Data” workshop took place in Ghent, Belgium on May 27-28, 2019.
From the Meeting Report:
Research funders across Europe are increasingly mandating Open Science practices for funded research outputs to support open and free access to valuable elements of the scholarly communication life-cycle. From OA to publications and the recent PlanS developments, to the promotion and uptake of coordinated RDM practices, to the more advanced research assessment exercises to understand innovation and societal impact, there is a need for monitoring of research output.
National and EU e-Infrastructures respond to these needs by embedding and developing monitoring tools to provide evidence-based data on policy uptake, costs, and research impact, while at the same time promoting interoperability of information outputs, shareable across networks.
This two-day workshop, co-organised by OpenAIRE and Data4Impact, with support of Science Europe, explored mechanisms for research policy monitoring and indicators, and how to link these to infrastructure and services. The first day was focused on open science indicators as these emerge from national and EU initiatives, while the second day explored more advanced aspects of indicators for innovation and societal impact.
