The (mis)alignment of Open Science and research evaluation: addressing complexity with existing resources and context-sensitive evaluation | EuroCRIS
mdelhaye's bookmarks 2019-01-12
The presentation addresses the misalignment between the principles of Open Science and the current mechanisms for research evaluation, which do not accurately capture the aspects that should reward Open Science practitioners. An overview is first provided of the present Open Science policy context both at an European and a national level in the Netherlands. The concept of Openness Profile is introduced, devised by a Knowledge Exchange working group as a means to capture good Open Science practice at a bottom level. Finally, an 'Evaluative Inquiry' approach is proposed as an alternative research evaluation framework that captures Open Science practice by changing the assessment methodology.
