GraspOS Webinars

Assessing Open Access Books: Shedding Light on Peer Review with PRISM

The webinar presented the Peer Review Information Service for Monographs (PRISM) and discussed how it can be used in research assessment.

PRISM is a service developped by OPERAS which aims to enhance trust in Open Access book publishing through increased transparency in the peer review process, offering publishers a standardised platform to display their peer review procedures, integrate metadata, ultimately building trust in Open Access book publishing. 

Learning outcomes: 

  • Understand peer review in relation to Responsible Research Assessment; 
  • Learn how PRISM works and how it helps increase transparency in Peer Review for OA books;
  • Reflect on how PRISM could be useful in the context of Responsible Research Assessment. 

Date: 14th May 2024, 10:00-11:00 am CEST
Presenters: Carol Delmazo (OPERAS), Fotis Mystakopoulos (OPERAS), Ronald Snijder (OAPEN Foundation).

Summary of the event:


BIP scholar: going beyond researcher profiles

This training session introduced the main functionalities of BIP! Scholar, a service that offers researchers the opportunity to set up profiles that summarize their research careers, showcasing different aspects of work conducted. Participants learnt about BIP! Scholar and how it can assist researcher assessement. The training also presented impact indicators, which aspects of research work can be valorised, and how to design a researcher's CV.

Date: 2nd November 2023, 14.00 – 15.00 CET
Presenter: Thanasis Vergoulis (Athena Research Center)
Moderator: Zenia Xenou (OpenAIRE)
Virtual event via Zoom supported by OpenAIRE AMKE
