Measuring the Impact of Open Science Practices on Climate Change

About This Case Study

This case study investigates OS practices in addressing climate change issues by developing and testing a set of tools that analyze and measure OS outcomes and impacts, thus, providing concrete evidence how the materialization of impacts is potentially affected by the enabling factors for OS

Concretely, we will examine OS practices in various perspectives, like: (i) open peer-reviewed publications and their scientific impact, (ii) collaboration patterns in OS among different types of institutions advancing climate change research and accelerating efforts to mitigate impacts; (iii) citation patterns in relevant patents (i.e., Renewable energy) of open peer-reviewed publications, (iv)  openly-available datasets and other research artifacts made available through various repositories leading to technological applications, (v) the societal uptake and awareness of OS research results in climate change through citation semantic analysis in media outlets. 

We will report on the above dimensions and OS perspectives in the context of the H2020 intervention.
