This webinar will focus on the data that exists about scholarly communication. Such data includes anything that enables us to expose and analyse the processes, connections and entities involved in all aspects of research communication.
Most of the data we currently have, however, doesn’t fully cover the research output of the Global South and is unrepresentative and incomplete. We will address issues of inequity and discuss the challenges in sourcing data that is truly representative of global knowledge creation. We will also discuss the governance and funding it will take to create a coherent and equitable system. There is an innate conflict between proprietary and closed datasets that are available only to those who can afford them versus an open universe of data that enables all communities involved in knowledge generation to contribute, access and analyse data.
The webinar will be chaired by Iryna Kuchma and Catriona MacCallum with panellists Lucy Montgomery, Ludo Waltman and Caleb Kibet.
