Open Science Olympics by #BiblioVerifica




BiblioVerifica dedicates the Olympics 2020 to the memory of Jon Tennant, who died prematurely on 9 April, through 15 self-assessment quizzes on open science practices and principles.


Welcome in "BiblioVerifica Open Science Olympics 2020"
- We do NOT ask for money
- We do NOT disclose personal or contact details to third parties.
- We do NOT offer cash prizes or vouchers

Anyone (if over 18 years old) can try for free his or her skills to recognise open science principles and practices as proposed by OpenScienceMooc by answering 15 closed-ended questions.

Clarify Why You Might Want to Start an International Research Collaboration
For the purposes of research assessment, consider the value and impact of allresearch outputs (including datasets and software) in addition to research publications, and consider a broad range of impact measures including qualitative indicators of research impact, such as influence on policy and practice
Researchers who use or adapt science source code in their research must credit the code's creators in resulting publications
Be clear that inappropriate manipulation of metrics will not be tolerated; be explicit about what constitutes inappropriate manipulation and what measures will be taken to combat this
Make available a range of article-level metrics to encourage a shift toward assessment based on the scientific content of an article rather than publication metrics of the journal in which it was published
Facilitate enabling environments for use of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT). Bridge the digital divide by developing adequate infrastructure, in particular, affordable broadband connectivity, widespread mobile technology and reliable electrical power supply. Improve media and information literacy and encourage the development and use of OER in open standard digital formats.
Be explicit about the criteria used in evaluating the scientific productivity of grant applicants and clearly highlight, especially for early-stage investigators, that the scientific content of a paper is much more important than publication metrics or the identity of the journal in which it was published
For the purposes of research assessment, consider the value and impact of all research outputs (including datasets and software) in addition to research publications, and consider a broad range of impact measures including qualitative indicators of research impact, such as influence on policy and practice
(Meta) data within the Data Object should thus be both syntactically parseable and semantically machine-accessible
It advocates for every individual's right to research and enables different forms of participation at all stages of the research process.
Citizen science projects actively involve citizens in scientific endeavour that generates new knowledge or understanding. Citizens may act as contributors, collaborators, or as project leader and have a meaningful role in the project.
Foster awareness and use of OER. Promote and use OER to widen access to education at all levels, both formal and non-formal, in a perspective of lifelong learning, thus contributing to social inclusion, gender equity and special needs education. Improve both cost-efficiency and quality of teaching and learning outcomes through greater use of OER.
Do not use journal-based metrics, such as Journal Impact Factors, as a surrogate measure of the quality of individual research articles, to assess an individual scientist's contributions, or in hiring, promotion, or funding decisions
Consider the Characteristics Your International Collaborator Must Have
Be open and transparent by providing data and methods used to calculate all metrics
