2017 SSP 39th Annual Meeting
Concurrent 3D: Degrees of Open-ness…
Evaluating the impact of Open Access publications is of key importance, whether for funding or demonstrating the real significance of published work. It is standard practice for publishers to audit metrics relating to paid content, but with OA the situation is more complex. Quantifying download metrics may be straightforward, but judging what these mean in terms of readership, (re)usage and sharing is much harder. There may be citation advantages with OA articles, but how can we tell? How can real impact factors and success criteria be evaluated? This exploratory and reflective session will consist of a short self-introduction by each panellist followed by a brief introduction to the main issues. The audience will then be invited to work in pairs to prepare questions for the panellists. A series of prepared topics for open panel discussion followed by pairwork questions from the floor will form the second part of the session.
