This report analyses the place of Open Science in the academic assessment approaches of universities across Europe.


It answers important questions like, when institutions evaluate research, do they consider the openness of the research process and its outputs? If so, how and to what extent are open research practices acknowledged? And if not, what are the reasons and are there plans to include open research practices in the future?

This is a follow-up report to the 2020-21 EUA Open Science Survey results. It offers the perspective of European universities on the state of play and potential paths forward for responsible academic assessment. It is part of a series of three follow-up reports to the main EUA 2020-2021 Open Science Survey report.

The other reports (forthcoming in 2022) will take a closer look at the topics of Open Access to research publications and research data.
