UniLaSalle has just published its 2023 Open Science Barometer, a tool for measuring the progress of the openness of scientific publications produced by the Polytechnic Institute.
The updated version of the UniLaSalle Open Science Barometer highlights the dynamic of openness of the Institute's scientific production. The rate of openness of publications has increased by more than 50% in the space of five years and is expected to reach 84% in 2021.
Created by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation in 2019, and as part of the National Plan for Open Science, the Open Science Barometer measures the percentage and progression of open access publications, i.e. publications that can be freely consulted in their entirety by anyone and without restrictions.
For the first year, UniLaSalle is using the new version of the national Barometer
The raw data was collected in December 2022. The data used in the UniLaSalle Open Science Barometer comes from various sources such as Unpaywall and HAL. Only publications with a DOI (Digital Object Identifier), a resource identification mechanism, are taken into account in the Barometer: the data are therefore not exhaustive.
