PSF Mutual Learning Exercise on Open Science - Altmetrics and Rewards

26. Apr. 2018

European mutual learning exercise for the best possible transition to open science

The final report of this very exiting and prolific exercise builds on the exchange of experiences and mutual learning of 13 countries: Armenia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Portugal, Slovenia, Sweden and Switzerland. It provides an overview of various challenges of Open Science implementation across Europe as discussed throughout several meetings in 2017.

Its focus is on three topics:

  1. The potential of altmetrics – alternative (i.e. non-traditional) metrics that go beyond citations of articles – to foster Open Science;
  2. Incentives and rewards for researchers to engage in Open Science activities;
  3. Guidelines for developing and implementing national policies for Open Science.

It identifies good practices, lists priorities and outlines potential courses of action for the best possible transition to Open Science.

The report was prepared by Frank Miedema (Chair), Katja Mayer from ZSI (Rapporteur), Kim Holmberg and Sabina Leonelli in the framework of the Mutual Learning Exercise (MLE) on Open Science funded and organised under the European Commission's Policy Support Facility (PSF).
