BEGIN: metadata for meaningful data metrics

May 19, 2022 @ 5:00 pm 6:00 pm UTC+2

Make Data Count (MDC) is a scholarly change initiative, made up of researchers and open infrastructure experts, building and advocating for evidence-based open data metrics. Throughout MDC’s tenure, various areas key to the development of research data assessment metrics have been identified. Please join a Spring seminar and discussion series centered around priority work areas, adjacent initiatives to learn from, and steps that can be taken immediately to drive diverse research communities towards assessment and reward for open data.

The third and last webinar in our series “BEGIN: metadata for meaningful metrics” will look at next steps to develop responsible and fair data metrics that can reflect the use and impact of research datasets and help elevate them to first-class scholarly outputs. We’ll focus on necessary metadata to construct metrics that take into account characteristics and contexts of open data across disciplines.
