New Approaches to Measuring Prevalence and Impact of Open Science

To deliver the benefits of Open Science, increasing adoption of Open Science practices beyond open access – such as research data and code sharing, preprint posting – is a prerequisite, as is measuring the impact of these practices. The 2021 UNESCO recommendation on Open Science has necessitated the establishment of a global Open Science monitoring framework, and progress has in parallel been made at the national level in France, with the French Open Science Monitor. Further, research institutions in the UK will begin piloting, in 2024, new ways to monitor indicators of open research (science) to support institutional planning and evaluation. Scholarly publishers and funding agencies with progressive policies on open science, beyond open access to publications, are also establishing monitoring approaches – and global stakeholders and tool developers have begun to explore the potential for common approaches for monitoring. This session will bring together representatives from research institutions, funding agencies, national initiatives and scholarly publishers who are implementing or piloting novel approaches to measuring prevalence and/ or impact of Open Science practices to discuss what they have learned, and the potential implications for research libraries. Attendees will learn how technologies, such as artificial intelligence, can advance the measurement of Open Science at a large scale, and learn how common principles can help to foreground responsible use of new metrics, pragmatism, equity and transparency and reproducibility in these initiatives.
