Keynote "Research Assessment facing Open Science Paradigms"

Big Science has favoured a research assessment model on quantitative indicators that have met the need to rationalise the exercise but have also contributed to the commodification of scientific knowledge and its standardisation. Instead, Open Science proposes an approach based on considering a wider range of research activities, which is more inclusive of society and more protective of scientific integrity. The talk will address the transitional period we are going through, where two approaches of research assessment are confronting each other with opposing values. In this confrontation, the role of Early Career Researchers is crucial because they are the ones who are supporting the reform, already playing by the rules of openness and taking the risks of change.

Chérifa Boukacem-Zeghmouri is Full Professor in Information and Communication Sciences at Claude Bernard University Lyon 1 and member of the research team ELICO. Based on the theoretical framework of cultural and creative industries, her research addresses mutations of scholarly communication to open and collaborative models. New forms of production, circulation, evaluation and legitimisation of scientific research constitute her main research themes. In this field, she has employed qualitative and bibliometric approaches. Chérifa Boukacem-Zeghmouri is Open Science officer for her institution, member of the COSO, co-pilot of the DORA Evaluation Working Group. She is also head of the IMST Master’s degree, providing Open Science and Open Research Data skills.
