OASPA Endorses the Declaration on Research Assessment

The Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA) has formally endorsed the Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), “a cross-disciplinary global initiative seeking to improve the ways in which scholarly research outputs are evaluated.” It has more than 11,000 individual and 445 organizational signatories so far, such as the Wellcome Trust, PLOS (Public Library of Science), eLife, and F1000. DORA acknowledges the limitations of the Journal Impact Factor and encourages scholarly outputs to be accurately measured.

For more information and to review DORA’s goals, read the press release.
