Digital Science: World’s First Open Syllabus Project To Expand Into New Languages After Being Awarded By Global Innovation Grant, From Digital Science. “The Open Syllabus Project (OSP) is building the world’s first large-scale online database of university course syllabi as a platform for new bibliometric, research, teaching, and administrative tools. The project’s beta Syllabus Explorer launched in 2016 with an archive of over 1 million syllabi and the ability to rank texts by appearance and co-occurrence on syllabi (i.e. what’s taught together). The Syllabus Explorer also debuted a new prototype publication metric—teaching score—derived from the frequency with which works are assigned. OSP is based at The American Assembly, a public policy institute at Columbia University, and its next version will greatly expand the size of the collection, the quality of metadata, and the range of tools available for filtering and analyzing curricular data. Syllabus Explorer 2.0 will launch this fall (2017).”
