One of three goals in AGU’s strategic plan is to lead in open science and open data; detailed guidelines, webinars, a help desk and data fair, aimed at AGU authors (but openly available to all), are designed to ensure that all scientific evidence is processed, shared, used ethically and fairly, and is available, preserved, and documented.
Tracking and evaluating the prevalence of members from different groups in open science initiatives; outputs produced by group members; participation across disciplines and areas; citation bias in different areas; social dynamics of OS systems, e.g., role of hierarchy; and barriers to accessing digital collections.
TWCF is launching its Open Research Program with a pilot transdisciplinary, global initiative – LLPW. ICOR will help develop methodologies, assets and incentives for collaborative open research, and will evaluate and document best practices based on the outcomes.
OLS develops and hosts virtual 16-week-long cohorts to train and mentor individuals and groups as advocates, with the aim of bringing collaborative OS to their communities. OLS also conducts research on the transformative impact of these activities and contributes Best Practice expert talks via YouTube (open license CC-BY).
Created to help research funders develop open policies that advance their organizational values, highlighting the continuum that exists between fully open and fully closed policies. Categories include article access, data/code access, reuse, costs, and compliance.
Providing practical alternatives to publishing metrics as the primary means of adjudicating scientists’ careers; supporting the hiring, promotion, retention, and funding of scientists committed to open and collaborative research.
