We support measures to reform the assessment of research
The Open and Universal Science (OPUS) project develops coordination and support measures to reform the assessment of research and researchers at Research Performing Organisations (RPOs) and Research Funding Organisations (RFOs) towards a system that incentivises and rewards researchers to take up Open Science practices.
We understand the term ‘Open Science’ to refer to practices providing open access to research outputs, early and open sharing of research, participation in open peer-review, measures to ensure reproducibility of results, and involving all stakeholders in co-creation.
What we are going to do?
Conduct a comprehensive state-of-the-art on existing literature and initiatives for Open Science
Develop a comprehensive set of interventions to implement Open Science at RPOs and RFOs
Develop realistic indicators and metrics to monitor and drive Open Science at RPOs and RFOs
Test the interventions and indicators and metrics via action plans in pilots at RPOs and RFOs
Utilise a stakeholder-driven feedback loop to develop, monitor, refine, and validate actions
Synthesise outcomes into policy briefs and a revised OS-CAM2 for research(er) assessment
