UniLaSalle has just published its Open Science Barometer, a tool for measuring the progress of the openness of scientific publications produced by the Polytechnic Institute.
Created by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (MESRI) in 2019, and as part of the National Plan for Open Science (PNSO), 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.
The data used in the UniLaSalle Open Science Barometer come from various sources such as Web of Science, Scopus, Unpaywall and HAL. Only publications with a DOI (Digital Object Identifier), a resource identification mechanism, are taken into account in the Barometer: the data is therefore not exhaustive.
This Barometer makes it possible to situate UniLaSalle in relation to the scientific productions carried out at national level. In this sense, the data retained concern the reference year 2019, in order to facilitate national comparisons.
