Openness Profile: Modelling research evaluation for open scholarship

Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportRapportForskning

The report identifies how the Openness Profile could provide solutions to several challenges:
• The need to accelerate the transition to open - operationalising and normalising open scholarship practices has proven challenging.
• Conflicting ambitions combined with strong network effects that punish those who deviate from sector norms around research assessment and practice.
• The economic nature of challenges, either financial or relating to actors’ incentives, associated with the transition to open scholarship.
• Distortion of researcher behaviour due to over-reliance on traditional metrics.
• Underfunded and underdeveloped funder grant information systems. Poor adoption of PIDs and little to no interoperability with downstream stakeholders.
• Key contributors to the academic knowledge ecosystem being under-recognised
• Research being organised with ‘well defined’ rules that do not include ‘open’-related criteria.

The Openness Profile is modelling how research evaluation in an open science context can be improved. Expected benefits are highlighted and requirements listed. Recommendations are provided to various stakeholders how to establish the Openness Profile as research evaluation routine.
