Building a narrative for researchers around Open Research Impact

557 views

Published on

Around the world, we continue to see a proliferation in policy direction relating to open access and open research. Uptake of OA has continued to grow, with growing awareness from researchers about the benefits of open research. However, how researchers understand the impact of publishing openly – from articles to books and research data - is sketchy at best. A number of studies have attempted to understand how open research is increasing scholarly impact, predominantly from a bibliometric perspective. In this session we will provide a publisher, library, researcher and funder perspective on how and why we are working to increase understanding amongst researchers of the reach and impact of publishing open access articles, books and data.

  13. 13. Capture, track and log all your team’s dissemination and impact activities together in one place. Export data in a variety of formats for reporting to your funder or institution. Use evidence of engagement across all your different channels as ‘breadcrumb trails’ for finding the evidence of your impact. Access a range of metrics for all your projects, publications and other key outputs – including views, downloads, citations, ‘altmetrics’ (online attention) and unique measures of reach (by audience type) and significance (trackable results). Map activities to metrics to learn which efforts have proved effective. Create and share profile pages for your projects, publications, and other outputs (posters, slides, videos, data etc). Use Kudos trackable links to increase visibility of your work within your own networks. Target a broader audience via Kudos dissemination, including global showcases for the media, industry and policy makers. Set up a dissemination plan for a project, body of work or for individual publications and outputs. Include activities you have already planned, or be inspired by our recommendations. Select, schedule and manage tasks across your team to ensure dissemination and impact activities are coordinated and captured. PLAN MANAGE TRACK REPORT Kudos for Research Groups Any research object or output Any communication activity, online or offline Any audience Any size of group
