A new strategic challenge for GESIS is the research on collaborative and participatory models and infrastructures which support open science processes in the social sciences.
Main research areas in the field of open science are:
- Modelling of collaborative publishing processes in the social sciences
- Analyses of collaborative information behavior and the development of collaborative retrieval services
- Tools and infrastructures for social scientists to share their research -- including their code and data -- in order to make research reproducible
- Alternative metrics (so-called altmetrics) to measure the impact of research output
