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.
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.
NGLP’s purpose is to improve open access publishing pathways for campus-based and nonprofit publishers by seeding an ecosystem of open infrastructures and mission-aligned service providers. Modular, interoperable OS components may be assembled to meet many publishing needs.
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).
Developing templates that enable best open science practices and provide team members alternatives to inter-institutional agreements; documents are built around open science pillars, i.e., no restrictive IP, open sharing of all resources, and sharing credit through attribution and persistent digital identifiers.
Open source, community-built handbook created in GitHub with continual additions/revisions, covering reproducible research, project design, communication, collaboration, ethical research and guidelines for contributors; stakeholders are encouraged to use the guide to understand their roles and responsibilities in data science.
TWCF’s OA policy commenced in 2021 to ensure that knowledge and discoveries resulting from their funding maximizes their benefit. With a global mandate to support projects wherever they can have the greatest impact, it is crucial that all outputs are openly accessible to anyone with an internet connection.
