Impact has a Bad Name. . .

Impact has a bad name among many researchers, but thinking of impact as re-use could be key to uniting both funders and researchers. Blog post by Cameron Neylon.

"We may not be able to demonstrate or to measure significant re-use of the outputs of the research that we fund now for many years. But what we can do is focus on optimizing the capacity and the potential for future exploitation. Where we can’t demonstrate re-use and impact we should demand that researchers demonstrate that they have optimized their outputs to enable future re-use and future impact. Where research doesn’t have near term applications we should apply a higher standard of curation and archival, and above all require researchers to ensure that their work remains discoverable over the next decades when its possible applications may surface."
