Meeting objectives

The evolution of the evaluation of research from being mostly bibliographic index-based is now recognized to be indispensable to enable Open Science. In the same way that Open Science promotes the open sharing of FAIR data and other research outputs, evaluators must also value and consider these outputs as part of the wider research evaluation framework.  The RDA is an appropriate forum for addressing the evolving requirements of research evaluation as they relate to Open Science practices, and in particular to addressing challenges around the evaluation of datasets as valuable assets in their own right and the recognition of participation in the definition and maintenance of disciplinary or generic data sharing frameworks and of data services, as well as more generally of team work. RDA’s reach across the international community, including research organisations and funders, can help to facilitate and align a global discussion of research evaluation, drawing on data experts from a range of domains.
