Presentation Open Access

Measuring openness: Why measure openness and how do we do it?

Peters, Isabella

The presentation will introduce the audience to various approaches to both quantitatively and qualitatively measure the state of openness of research. It will also discuss what reasons may motivate open science assessment frameworks and whether they tackle the concept “openness” appropriately

The 2019 LIS-Bibliometrics event will focus on open metrics and measuring openness. It aims to provide a forum for practitioners to hear, share, discuss and debate how open metrics can be introduced, developed and used and how to measure openness and its impact. The event will include keynote presentations from Catriona McCallum, Co-Originator of the I40C Initiative for Open Citations; Dr Isabella Peters, Professor of Web Science at the ZBW Leibniz Information Centre for Economics and CAU Kiel University followed by three parallel sessions. In the afternoon there will be lightning talks and a panel session: Thinking globally about research evaluation: common problems and common solutions? (
