Implementation of Open Science policy should involve a corresponding improvement in the recognition of contributions to open scholarship, which are currently often unnoticed. Knowledge Exchange (http://knowledge-exchange.info) has established the Working Group on Open Scholarship and Research Evaluation in order to address a move towards a greater awareness of open scholarship contributions, proposing the concept of an "Openness Profile". This profile is a way to document contributions to open scholarship and includes procedures for self-publishing these contributions as a digital object with a persistent identifier. It also provides information on the strategic use of contemporary research information infrastructure to promote the published contributions. The link to infrastructure is also intended to ensure that the profile is discoverable and accessible to both humans and machines. We envisage the openness profile as a collection of documented contributions with a DOI, linked to the contributor’s ORCID. By intervening at the level of infrastructure, the openness profile is able to provide resources that will be not only useful to those presently contributing to open scholarship, but also available for (and adaptable to) future institutional needs associated with top-down research policy initiatives.
