Reputation is crucial for advancement in the academic system. However, the evaluation of researchers depends less on the quality of their research, and more on the quantity of their publications and the reputation of the journal in which they were published. In recent times, the discourse on scientific assessment has extended beyond publications to acknowledge the multidimensionality of scholarly work and output. This pertains not only to the significance of teaching, but also, to a large extent, to reviewer activities.
Berlin Exchange Medicine, a student-run open science journal and thinktank, advocates for a comprehensive transformation of current research practices to embrace open science as the new standard in science and knowledge dissemination. As representatives of the perspective of early career researchers, we see the need to adjust the current crediting system. Only by incentivizing good scientific practices can the system be transformed from a closed system to an open science system. However, change is not always easy.
During our workshop, we want to delve into the complexity of crediting by asking questions such as:
(i) Is recognition necessarily bound to the individual researcher? And (ii) How can we make the system work for a change of practice towards Open Science Principles?
