Abstract

This dataset evaluates the authorship of open educational resources available at 5 STEM resource web sites (EcoEd Digital Library, CourseSource, Teaching Issues and Experiments in Ecology, Teach the Earth, and the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science). Using 20 exercises from each site, it evaluates the proportion of exercises that draw on peer-reviewed scientific studies; of those, it also evaluates the proportion in which any author of the teaching exercise overlaps with any author of a scientific article from which the open educational resource is derived. The overall goal is to evaluate overlap in authorship between scientific publications and associated open educational resources. The first tab shows how the studies were selected and the second tab presents authorship data for each study.

Methods

It was collected using the methods described in the first tab of the dataset, essentially via a systematic review of online sites that provide peer reviewed active learning open educational resources in ecology and related fields.
