Open Impact

Digital Libraries, Web Science

Open Impact is a project to help collect evidence about the impact of research that has been undertaken in UK universities and to provide it to a range of stakeholders (government, funders, press etc) through an independent third party agency (a learned society). The project focuses on a specific discipline (Computer Science) mediated through a particular society (the British Computer Society). In particular, this project will produce software that helps to make institutional repositories effective in collecting evidence of the impact of their institutions’ research – evidence that justifies the investment that government and research funders have made and that promotes the role of Universities in society.
