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.
Arcadia Science is an R&D institute aspiring to evolve how science is done, who it attracts and rewards, and what it can achieve. Arcadia’s radical experiment in communication requires that all research must be freely accessible at an early stage and cannot be published in journals.
A comprehensive report on how the Aligning Science Across Parkinson’s research initiative has worked toward its goals of promoting OS and collaboration to date. It presents procedures, templates, and findings (metrics) on the approach since the project was launched in 2019 and is updated regularly.
ASAP mandates OA for all publications of work that they fund, to facilitate the rapid and free exchange of scientific ideas and ensure that the research they fund to treat Parkinson’s disease can be leveraged for future discoveries.
This toolkit includes templates, FAQs, documentation, and other items shared by COAPI members. Members share best practices in OA policy advocacy and implementation with each other by email, phone, and face-to-face meetings.
Crossref is an official digital object identifier (DOI) Registration Agency of the International DOI Foundation. It is run by the Publishers International Linking Association Inc. (PILA) and was launched in early 2000 as a cooperative effort among publishers to enable persistent cross-publisher citation linking in online academic journals.
This blogpost provides an overview of the specific ways that Crossref (along with organizations and initiatives like DataCite, ORCID, and ROR) helps U.S. federal agencies (and any other funder) meet critical aspects of the United States Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) Nelson Memo’s recommendations.
The FAIR Island project is a unique opportunity to examine the impact of implementing optimal research data management policies and leverage existing research infrastructure at two real-world field stations – the Tetiaroa Ecostation and the Gump South Pacific Research station. Through this collaboration they have experimented with non-traditional use of research output management plans and more recently created project metadata and identifiers using existing DataCite infrastructure.

This policy is based on the belief that published research should be promptly and broadly disseminated. It enables the unrestricted access and reuse of all peer-reviewed published research funded, in whole or in part, by the Gates Foundation, including any underlying data sets.
The Global Flourishing Study (GFS) is a five-year longitudinal data collection and research collaboration between researchers at various institutions and provides a case example for improving rigor, reproducibility, and sharing with large datasets by requiring preregistration and open sharing of all research outcomes and outputs.
