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.
An Editorial Facilitator who is a subject specialist convenes discussions with team members to review and interpret their findings in light of the latest published evidence; (s)he writes and continually updates a Living Narrative based on these discussions, citing team-reviewed incremental findings and posting openly for community review.
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.

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.

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.
Sample template for a deliberative approach by team members to assess and plan for key issues — e.g., collaboration rationale and readiness, inter- and intra-team communication, investigators’ technologies & resources, conflict management, budget issues, publication — that influence both scientific and collaborative success.
The Open Science Team Agreement gives researchers and other stakeholders the tools they need to understand and advocate for open science practices at a broader scale-within their laboratory, department, or the broader community.
Developing metrics that reflect team members’ collaborative research activities – e.g., sharing/posting early research, reviewing, revising, commenting – as well as the rapid, open dissemination of their findings.
The Discourse Graph extension enables Roam users to seamlessly add additional semantic structure to their notes, including specified page types and link types that model scientific discourse, to enable more complex and structured knowledge synthesis work, such as a complex interdisciplinary literature review, and enhanced collaboration with others on this work.
