The EU-funded project OpenUP addresses key aspects and challenges of the currently transforming science landscape and aspires to come up with a cohesive framework for the review-disseminate-assess phases of the research life cycle that is fit to support and promote open science. The primary objectives of the project are (1) to identify ground-breaking mechanisms, processes and tools for peer-review for all types of research results (e.g., publications, data, software), (2) explore innovative dissemination mechanisms with an outreach aim towards businesses and industry, education, and society as a whole, and (3) analyze a set of novel indicators that assess the impact of research results and correlate them to channels of dissemination. The project employs a user-centered, evidence-based approach, engaging all stakeholders (researchers, publishers, funders, institutions, industry, public) in an open dialogue through a series of workshops, conferences and training, while validating all interim results in a set of seven pilots involving communities from four research disciplines: life sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities, and energy.
IRPPS-CNR participates in WP4 activities focused on innovative dissemination of research outputs and in WP6 with a pilot study about open peer review applied on Social science data
