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.
Encouraging the use of preprints for research outputs beyond the scope of a traditional article and appearing well in advance of any associated eventual journal publication; drawing attention to non-traditional formats such as early stage results, null findings and replications of published works.
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.
Starting in 2023, eLife will no longer make accept/reject decisions but will publish all peer-reviewed papers on its website as Reviewed Preprints, including an eLife assessment and public reviews. Authors can respond and either revise/resubmit or declare it as the final Version of Record.
This project has developed a values-based open source implementation and assessment program, crucial to developing a trustworthy data analysis ecosystem. While building standardized, easily accessible epidemiological software tools, Epiverse will be applying this values-based framework to metrics gauging the initiative’s success.
A global data analysis ecosystem creating standardized, accessible epidemiological software tools to solve real-world health problems. Three prongs include TRACE – the interoperable tools and software; BUILD – scaffolding for interdisciplinary engagement; and CONNECT – global community dedicated to innovation and health equity.
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.

ResearchEquals is an open access publishing platform sharing the research process step by step, diversifying primary outputs to include text, data, code, audio, and more. By doing so, all research work can be made public, with a DOI, to be able to get it recognized and rewarded.
A system for posting peer reviews of preprints on bioRxiv. By opting for Preprint Review, an author can have reviews of their preprint posted on bioRxiv and, at the same time, be considered for publication in eLife.
