UniLaSalle has just published its Open Science Barometer, a tool to measure the progress of openness of scientific publications produced by the Institut Polytechnique.
Created by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (MESRI) in 2019, and within the framework 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 comes from a variety of sources such as Web of Science, Scopus, Unpaywall and HAL. Only publications that have a DOI (Digital Object Identifier), a resource identification mechanism, are included in the Barometer, so the data is not exhaustive.
This Barometer makes it possible to situate UniLaSalle in relation to the scientific productions carried out at the national level. In this sense, the data retained concern the reference year 2019, in order to facilitate national comparisons.
