The following is a call for a consultant.

What may be of interest to readers here are the list of references in the scoping paper.


The Knowledge Exchange (KE) Working Group on Research Data is seeking a professional consultant or a team of consultants to produce a landscape study on metrics for datasets from both a cultural and a technical point of view.
Any bidding party should have expertise with respect to the publication, citation, use and reuse of research data and should be aware of current discussions on the assessment of research performance.
The study is to provide an overview of the various existing methods in different scientific communities that result in or may be adapted for reliable metrics to measure the impact of available, shared datasets.
A reflection on possible (unintended) effects of a future “data metrics” should be part of assessments and recommendations that result from this study. The study should therefore not only just take into account the bibliometric and technical aspects, but should also approach the matter from the perspective of evolving trends in scientific communication from a cultural perspective.
The outcome of the study will be a written report targeting a broad audience ranging from individual researchers to research organizations and research institutions (e.g. universities), and from infrastructure providers (such as data centres and libraries) to research and research infrastructure funders. The study will then be presented at a workshop on 11-12 April 2013 in Berlin, Germany.

Candidates are invited to briefly outline their expertise on the topic; propose the methods that they think would be most appropriate to achieve the aims and objectives; and provide a brief concept for the realization of the study, including a proposal for the title and structure of the study. Please see the attached document for more information.
Candidates are invited to submit their proposals by Wednesday 7 November 2012, 17:00 CET.

Best wishes,
Britt Solbjerg Madsen
