“The Open Science Monitor tracks the development of open science trends in Europe.
Initially launched in 2017 to support the EU policies, the OSM has been revamped in May 2018 with updated data and visual identity. But open science is continuously developing, and over the next months, new trends, indicators, and data will be added.
We need the input of the open science community to improve the indicators and identify new data sources, as illustrated in the methodological note (pdf). Below, you can comment on the individual indicators of the OSM. Your comments will help improve the Open Science Monitor….
This consultation will remain open for the full duration of the project, but in order to actually improve the methodology, the deadline for contribution is August 31st, 2018….”
“The Open Science Monitor aims to
- provide data and insight to understand the development of open science in Europe
- gather the most relevant and timely indicators on the development of open science in Europe and other global partner countries
The Open Science Monitor will be updated on a regular basis in the course of the project, until the end of 2019. Over the next months, new indicators and data will be uploaded….
The Open Science Monitor is a collaborative effort and welcomes the contribution of the community. You can read the methodological note below, and provide your comments online on how to improve the specific indicators….
“[Q] How will open science influence LIS education?
“The pace of change in open access shows no sign of slackening in 2018. Here, Rob Johnson shares his advice on keeping up to date with the latest developments….Peter Suber’s OA tracking project (@oatp) provides crowd-sourced alerts about dozens of open access developments across the world every day….”
“There may be periods during the holidays when the +OATP (@oatp) feeds are smaller than usual. But we’ll be back, and we’ll catch up on the news we didn’t tag when making merry. Have a happy and open 2018.

Consider tagging OA-related news and comment as a volunteer. Tag OA developments in general or in your areas of specialization, for example, by academic field, geographic region, language, or subtopic of OA. We’d welcome your help in making our feeds timely and comprehensive.
“Join ASIS&T for an introduction to the Open Access Tracking Project by Peter Suber, Director of the Harvard Open Access Project and the Harvard Office of Scholarly Communication. Suber will be presenting his Open Access Tracking project and looking for students to provide future assistance. Come hangout with other LIS students and learn about an exciting new opportunity. Light refreshments will be provided.”
The home page of the Open Access Tracking Project. “OATP uses social tagging to capture new developments on open access to research. The OATP mission is (1) to provide a real-time alert service for OA-related news and comment, and (2) to organize knowledge of the field by tag or subtopic. The project publishes a comprehensive primary feed of new OA developments, and hundreds of smaller secondary feeds on OA subtopics, one for each project tag.”
