The San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) points out that using the Journal Impact Factor as a proxy measure for the value or quality of specific research and individual scientists leads to biased research assessment. How can we resist misusing metrics?
Helping students wandering in the land of the mind to work, finish, publish, become famous, have impact, win prizes, and reflect glory on their thesis advisors
The Homer Multitext (HMT) is a long-term project seeking to present the Homeric Iliad and Odyssey in a critical framework. The project emphasizes collaborative research, openly licensed data, and innovative uses of technology. All material is openly licensed.
HMT invites fellow researchers from all over the world to collaborate in the form of diplomatic editions, images of historical documents, and translations. In this context, the main purpose of dissemination is to reach out to other academic/research communities in the fields (homeric research, digital humanities). The purpose is not only to disseminate the results, but also to stimulate new cooperations, contributions, and ultimately also to share resources among the peers (incl. data, software)
101 Innovations in scholarly communication is a project that aims to analyse in detail research lifecycle phases and innovative tools that are used by researchers in each of the phases. Specifically, the purpose of the project was to investigate to what extent researchers are using the innovative communication tools compared to traditional ones and what impact these tools have on the research workflow.
The OpenUP dissemination strategy as formulated in deliverable D2.1 is a practical example of how dissemination can be implemented in an EU project.
