Impact metrics have a strong influence on the scientific community, affecting the assessment of institutions of higher education and research as well as decisions concerning who gets promoted or hired, who receives grants, and who publishes where. In this situation, it is essential that the methods used to calculate metrics should be transparent, and reproducible and that their integrity should be auditable, and beyond question. This workshop will discuss the limitations of current systems and platforms, presenting a use case from Usage Statistics platform, and the recommendations of creating an open platform for Impact Data.
