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.
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.
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.

Gates-funded researchers can publish their original content, including detailed methods and all source data, on this platform. All content is open access under a CC-BY license; peer review is fully transparent, as are authors’ revisions and ongoing updates.
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.
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 Access Tracking Project (OATP) is a crowd-sourced social-tagging project running on open-source software to capture news and comment on open access (OA) to research in every academic field and region of the world. It’s the most comprehensive of OA-related news anywhere.
