Open Science Literature Review
Open Science Literature Review 1024 776 Open and Universal Science (OPUS) Project

The team behind the OPUS project examined literature on Open Science. This has been conducted (and will later be updated) as part of state-of-the-art on literature to reform research(er) assessment and incentivize and reward Open Science, to stay up-to-date on research assessment reform and encourage Open Science practices.

Open Science (OS) has emerged as an inclusive movement that aims to make scientific knowledge multilingual, openly available, accessible, and reusable for everyone. The movement also seeks to increase scientific collaborations and sharing of information, and to open the processes of scientific knowledge creation, evaluation, and communication to societal actors beyond the traditional scientific community. To achieve these goals, the research community needs to reform the researcher assessment system and incentivize and reward OS practices. The OPUS project was initiated to address this need, and it has three main components: incentives for OS, metrics and indicators for OS, and pilots to implement and monitor OS.

The first component, incentives for OS, involves a review of the existing literature on researcher assessment and the incentivization of OS practices. The review found that the current assessment system focuses too much on bibliometrics, which involves peer-reviewed publications and citations in top journals. To promote OS, the research community needs a more comprehensive approach that includes research/non-research, open/closed, and quantitative/qualitative dimensions. The literature also suggests several proposals for frameworks, including principles, guidelines, support, and indicators/metrics to reform researcher assessment.

The second component, metrics and indicators for OS, involves the identification of key metrics and indicators that can measure the impact of OS practices. This component is crucial for incentivizing and rewarding OS, as it enables the research community to measure the impact of OS practices and their contribution to the scientific community and society. The OPUS project is currently developing a framework of indicators/metrics for researcher assessment, including OS, to promote the adoption of OS practices in research-performing and research-funding organizations.

The third component, pilots to implement and monitor OS, involves the implementation of the framework developed in the second component in research-performing and research-funding organizations. The pilots will test the effectiveness of the framework and identify any areas that require improvement. The ultimate goal of the pilots is to promote the adoption of OS practices and reform the researcher assessment system to incentivize and reward OS practices.

In conclusion, the OPUS project is a vital initiative that seeks to promote OS practices, reform the researcher assessment system, and incentivize and reward OS practices. The project’s three components, incentives for OS, metrics and indicators for OS, and pilots to implement and monitor OS, provide a comprehensive approach to promoting OS and ensuring its adoption in the research community. Ultimately, the adoption of OS practices will enable the research community to increase scientific collaborations, sharing of information, and open engagement of societal actors, leading to greater trust in science by researchers and the public.

Initial State of the Art on Open Science Initiatives
Initial State of the Art on Open Science Initiatives 1024 776 Open and Universal Science (OPUS) Project

As an important initiative that aims to help reform research assessment and incentivize researchers to practice Open Science, the OPUS project has started with Work Package 1 (WP1) State-of-the-Art which conducted an analysis of initiatives and literature related to Open Science.

In simple terms, the OPUS project team members analysed Open Science initiatives and literature that encourage researchers to practice Open Science. The first task (Task 1.1 within WP1) run by our team members was a State-of-the-Art analysis on Open Science initiatives, that covered an analysis of projects linked to Open Science and key experts, organizations, and networks associated with Open Science. It also produced a stakeholder engagement plan, focusing on means of engaging key target actors to support their input in the other two work packages of the project: WP2 (developing interventions for RPOs and RFOs to implement a reformed research(er) assessment system that incentivises and rewards Open Science) and WP3 (developing indicators and metrics for a reformed assessment system at RPOs and RFOs that incentivises and rewards Open Science).

Deliverable 1.1 “Initial State of the Art on Open Science Initiatives” aims to provide an initial structured input to the project’s overall objective to develop 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 incentivizes and rewards researchers to practice Open Science.

At the GraspOS kickoff meeting that is being held today at the Athens University History (Athens, Greece), OPUS project partner Technopolis Group, and its representative Gareth O’Neill – Principal Consultant on Open Science, presented what the OPUS does when it comes to a set of interventions for Open Science toward a system that incentivises and rewards researchers to take up practices of 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.

GraspOS (next Generation Research Assessment to Promote Open Science) is a new project funded under the EOSC umbrella. The project builds on previous work and aims to promote Responsible Research Assessment by enabling a rewards and recognition system based on a new generation of (qualitative or quantitative) metrics and indicators. GraspOS will develop, assess and put into operation an open and trusted federated infrastructure for next generation research metrics and indicators. Developing an Open Science Assessment Framework (OSAF) is shown as a key project objective. The 18-partner GraspOS project consortium shows again some overlap with the consortia for the other two EOSC projects presented previously, FAIRCORE4EOSC and FAIR-IMPACT.

O’Neill explained that the goal of OPUS is to develop coordination and support measures to reform the assessment of research(ers), along with the following:

  • 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.

OPUS is is an EU-funded project being implemented in the period from 1 September 2022 to 31 August 2025 by an eighteen-organisations consortium led by The Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands (PLOCAN). All 18 organisations implementing the OPUS project are active at the European level spanning the whole spectrum of Open Science.

European Research Area (ERA)

The European Research Area (ERA) is the ambition to create a single, borderless market for research, innovation and technology across the EU.

It helps countries be more effective together, by strongly aligning their research policies and programmes. The free circulation of researchers and knowledge enables better cross-border cooperation, building of critical mass, continent-wide competition.

ERA was launched in 2000 and a process to revitalise it began in 2018.

20 key organisations and networks and a list of over 100 experts identified in the OPUS WP1
20 key organisations and networks and a list of over 100 experts identified in the OPUS WP1 1024 850 Open and Universal Science (OPUS) Project

Our team made a lot of progress on the work package one (WP1) of the OPUS project State-of-the-art on existing literature and initiatives for Open Science.

A full analysis of the H2020 work programmes from SWAFS, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, Research Infrastructure, Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation, relevant to Open Science has been made.

Our team members were really busy in the last three months: they have reviewed 35 projects, taking half through to the second phase of a more in-depth review. They have identified about 20 key organisations and networks and a list of over 100 experts, with whom our team wants to involve throughout the project.

Also, the OPUS team is wading through the literature on topics like gender equality and open science, precarity and open science, industry and open science…

This part of the OPUS activities (WP1) is the foundation for future work packages, so looking forward to lots of key inputs.

18 partners of the OPUS Project presented their plans

The Open and Universal Science (OPUS) Project Kick Off Conference, coordinated and hosted by PLOCAN, took place on September 19–20, 2022 at PLOCAN premises in Telde, Gran Canaria, Spain.

It is the first conference gathering all OPUS Project Consortium partners in one place since the project started on September 1. In the following period of 36 months, OPUS will conduct a specific focus on reforming the research(er) assessment system to incentivise and reward researchers to take up Open Science 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 citizens, civil society, and end-users in the co-creation of research and innovation agendas and content.

OPUS Project Coordinator Gordon Dalton – PLOCAN, and Project Manager, Jessica Huntingford – RESOLVO srl opened the Kickoff Conference.

“OPUS is more than a theory project, it is very practical and we are proud to have research organisations: 3 research performing organisations (RPOs) and 2 research funding organisations (RFOs), where we will set up and monitor interventions to implement a reformed Open Science system“, Dr. Dalton said.

Jean-Emmanuel Faure, DG RTD, Policy Officer for Open Science at EU Commission joined the conference online and presented his expectations on the project from the European Research Executive Agency (REA) perspective, a funding body mandated by the European Commission to support the EU Research and Innovation Policy. He also presented a survey on which type of academic work matter most for research careers.

Rinske Van-Den-Berg, OPUS Project Officer in REA also joined online the OPUS kick-off conference, explaining the expectations from her perspective and providing inputs on how to successfully implement the project.

‘OPUS team managed to convince Horizon Europe and three main assessment partners that 18 partners consortium is more than capable of implementing research assessment in the Open Science project, said Van-Den-Berg. This also means that OPUS needs to meet these expectations.

On day 2 at the OPUS Kick-off conference, representatives of partner organisations presented the plan of all the work packages. RESOLVO Srl, Yerun, CRAC-Vitae, MCAA, Eurodoc, UNESCO and TrustInside representatives presented their plan to conduct state-of-the-art on existing literature and initiatives for Open Science.

Shortly after, John Crowley from TrustInside presented how we can contribute to a higher level of social trust in doing open science? What do institutions need to do to create trustworthy organisations? While explaining the importance of creating specific frameworks, protocols, and procedures, John Crowly – TrustInside presented the Tree of Trust.

CRAC Vitae (Emma Day and Claire Viney) and Technopolis (Gareth O’Neil) representatives presented Work Packages 2 and 3:  Interventions for Open Science and Indicators and Metrics for Open Science (Reward and Incentives for Researchers). In the future OPUS will develop interventions to be tested by pilot RPOs and RFOs in activity 4 (WP4): In particular, in WP4, OPUS will test interventions and indicators and metrics for Open Science via 3 pilot RPOs (Nova University Lisbon, University of Rijeka, and University of Cyprus) and 2 pilot RFOs from Lithuania and Romania (RCL and UEFISCDI). These pilot organisations will learn from each other and draw experience from external experts in mutual learning exercises. The results of the pilots will be translated into policy briefs and thematic workshops that will help to raise awareness, build trust, and drive the uptake of Open Science in the community.

UNESCO representative Juliana Chaves Chaparro presented that OPUS will develop and disseminate policy briefs on Open Science and a revised OS-CAM to assess research careers. The policy briefs will summarise the key findings of the project (initial and final) and link to the wider global context of Open Science in terms of (1) research(er) assessment, (2) incentives and rewards, (3) precarity of research careers, (4) gender equality, (5) industry practices (implemented by (UNESCO, ABIS, EURODOC, MCAA, PLOCAN, RESOLVO SRL, TGB, TrustInside, Vitae, VU, YERUN). The revised OS-CAM will provide a concrete career assessment framework to evaluate researchers at RPOs and RFOs (implemented by UNESCO, ABIS, EURODOC, MCAA, RESOLVO SRL, TGB, Vitae, VU, YERUN).

“A system that incentivises researchers to practice Open Science must show researchers why sharing their scientific work is important!”, said Dragana Mitrovic, from ICoRSA. To motivate researchers, ICoRSA, the leader on Work Package 7 will particularly take this in mind while working on Dissemination & Communications plan with strategic and targeted measures for promoting Open Science.

OPUS Project Coordinator – PLOCAN will ensure the management, coordination, and communication of the project, which specifically means developing all plans and reports for project coordination and data management, and ensuring that all partners collectively contribute to a successful implementation of the project.

A very motivated project team ended up the Kick Off Conference with concrete plans and ideas on how to make an impact on all relevant Open Science stakeholders.

The OPUS project involves 18 different European partners, covering a wide range of organisations with relevant expertise to this project:

OPUS understands 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 citizens, civil society, and end-users in the co-creation of research and innovation agendas and content. With this interpretation of Open Science, OPUS will conduct a specific focus on reforming the research(er) assessment system to incentivise and reward researchers to take up these practices.

OPUS will deliver a state-of-the-art of existing literature for Open Science, interventions to implement a reformed Open Science system at Research Performing Organisations (RPOs) and Research Funding Organisations (RFOs). OPUS will develop indicators and metrics to monitor the implementation of the interventions. In particular, incentives to reward researchers to practise Open Science will be developed and tested.

In particular, OPUS will test interventions and indicators and metrics for Open Science via 3 pilot RPOs (Nova University Lisbon, University of Rijeka, and University of Cyprus) and 2 pilot RFOs from Lithuania and Romania (RCL and UEFISCDI). These pilot organisations will learn from both each other and draw experience from external experts in mutual learning exercises. The results of the pilots will be translated into policy briefs and thematic workshops that will help to raise awareness, build trust, and drive the uptake of Open Science in the community.

The project implementation started on 1 September 2022 with an implementation period of 36 months.
