While the movement to end journal-based metrics for evaluation continues to gain momentum, much progress is still needed for evaluation to actively encourage scholars and researchers to be open. In this panel, we'll look at new research into what happens when we create the wrong incentives for researchers, how evaluation can be done better, and how we can begin to change evaluation systems around the world.
