DIOSI project: a good example of Open Science and gender equality
The DIOSI project is mentioned as a good example in the European Research Area and Innovation Committee’s report on research evaluation in a context of Open Science and gender equality.
‘This report provides stakeholders involved in research evaluation reforms with a set of guidelines that aim at fostering both Open Science and gender equality. Both topics are key dimensions in the implementation of a new European Research Area and provide policy and decision makers, funders as well as researchers with a unique opportunity to substantially renegotiate, through evaluation, the social roles and responsibilities of publicly funded research, as well as to rethink the science system as a whole.’
The DIOSI project is mentioned near the end of the report (see p. 44, last paragraph), under the heading of the 6th general principle : “Create a virtuous circle between training and evaluation”: As a general principle, researchers should only be assessed in regard to skills and practices for which they have been duly trained or are offered the opportunity to get trained in. Any change in research evaluation – including in regard to Open Science and gender equality – should therefore be accompanied by related reforms in the researchers’ and evaluators’ training schemes.
