Session Abstract

The concept around next generation metrics has been used in several frameworks in the last years to address need to measure research including open science and impact or research further than in the more traditional academic background. There is an obvious need to improve the ways to assess researchers and their research outputs. Since 2012, where the Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) was developed some suggestions for the use of responsible metrics has been introduced. Also, many institutions as the European Commission, LERU or CESAER have presented roadmaps and even metric proposals. However, after several years of discussions, there is still not punch of metrics that can be applied to measure research. The aim of this course is (1) to give attendees the background to be updated with the trends regarding responsible use of metrics and the proposals for next generation metrics, defining properly the main concepts, (2) to show the importance of the sources for getting data for new metrics, and (3) propose in a collaborative way a range of metrics that can be useful for several national and local context. Bringing together a group of specialists working or with an interest in this subject that want to share and exchange their knowledge, would allow to compare national assessment experiences and a brainstorming to think about realistic metrics and strategies to implement innovative metrics to cover diverse aspects or research impact at institutional level.
