The study is based on mixed methods research and is anchored in the principles of open science, with an approach that aims to ensure the transparency of processes and the traceability of reasoning and interpretations. The mixed methods approach allows for the cross-referencing of qualitative information (interviews, bibliographic analysis) and quantitative information (digital mapping) collected during the study. Several questions were formulated to guide this exploratory work and served as the basis for the interview question grid.
This page presents the architectural scheme of the research project. It explains what phases the project went through and what the kinds of data that were collected. This page includes links to input data that were used to obtain results, and also the study's deliverables.
Qualitative Data : During the study, qualitative data on RoR research was collected through 13 semi-directive interviews. For each interview, the questions were divided thematically into 4 sections :
Section 1: professional background and current institutional environment
Section 2: knowledge and involvement in RoR research related to public policy and open science
Section 3: personal opinions about current international academic and policy context for RoR research in open science
Section 4: feedback or questions for interviewers
You can see the published interview question grid on HAL.
Quantitative Data : You can use this link to access the project's GitLab repository. There you will find three folders containing data collected with different tools during the research process.
1. Hyphe : this folder contains a .txt file with the list of 78 URLs which were imported in the tool Hyphe and a .gexf file extracted from Hyphe for visual processing with Gephi.
2. Open Knowledge Maps : this folder contains a sub-folder with screenshots of bibliometric network visualisations made with Open Knowledge Maps.
3. Voyant Tools : this folder contains a sub-folder with screenshots of word clouds made with Voyant Tools and a .md file with the terms used to generate the clouds.
4. SigmaJS : this folder contains three sub-folders with images, scripts, and several documents used to produce an interactive map using SigmaJS to render Hyphe data.
Bibliography : As part of the qualitative phase, a bibliography was compiled, which later became one of the project deliverables. To collect information sources, the open source tool Zotero was used to present the bibliography and references to websites in the form of a database. The online collection is divided into 6 parts:
books, articles and reports : 80 items
