GraspOS Landscape Survey on Reforming Research Assessment

May 9, 2023

by Lottie Provost

If you represent an organisation that is or could become a signatory of the Agreement on Reforming Research Assessment we invite you to respond to the following landscape survey on reforming research assessment by May 28th, 2023.

The purpose of this survey is to gain an overview of the state-of-the-art research assessment practices at the research performing and funding organisations, and other organisations involved with research assessment, who already are, or could become, signatories of the Agreement on Reforming Research Assessment

The questionnaire is structured based on CoARA core commitments and principles. Answering the survey takes around 20 to 30 minutes. If you want to take a look at the survey or ask your colleagues for advice, you can download the questionnaire here in word-format.

The survey is conducted and analysed by a working group including Janne Pölönen, Anna-Kaisa Hyrkkänen, Dragan Ivanović and Marita Kari.

GraspOS at a glance

The mission of the project is to enable a rewards and recognition system based on a new generation of (qualitative or quantitative) metrics and indicators, leading to a culture and system change that increases the quality and impact, creativity and transparency of and trust in science, and to establish a system of qualitative information based on community-led curation and annotations of research outcomes that feeds into a revamped rewards and recognition system.

GraspOS develops, assesses and puts into operation an open and trusted federated infrastructure for next-generation research metrics and indicators, offering data, tools, services and guidance to support and enable policy reforms for research assessment at three levels: individual/group, institutional, and country.

The project is coordinated by Athena Research Center (Greece) and brings forward a multidisciplinary consortium including CNR, CSC, EGI, CWTS Leiden, INRAE, INRIA, OpenAIRE, OPERAS, TSV, UNIBO and Utrecht University.

GraspOS is moving forward

A new community dedicated to Open Science and Responsible Research Assessment has been created on Zenodo. The community is curated by GraspOS and is envisioned as a place to gather, deposit and access relevant research on the topic. Researchers, research communities and projects are invited to make use of it for their own research and to share the news with their networks.
