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.
SPORR is an NIH-funded program for promoting and implementing best practices in research rigor and reproducibility. The goal is to provide education, training, and resources in principles and tools that optimize efficiency, validity, and reproducibility. For instance, they’ve created templates for CVs and data management plans, and researchers are rewarded for innovations such as an open source lab manual of best practices for reproducibility of computational workflows.
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.
