Motivating Participation in Open Science by Examining Researcher Incentives
A survey of researchers at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital provides insights into the challenges and opportunities involved in adopting an open science policy across an entire patient-oriented academic institution.
eLife Supports Development of Open Technology Stack for Publishing Reproducible Manuscripts Online
The Reproducible Document Stack will allow authors to submit their manuscripts in a format that includes embedded code blocks and computed outputs, and for publishers to preserve these assets in an enhanced version of the published online article.
The Initiative for Open Citations (I4OC) was launched on April 6th, 2017. Over the course of about six months, the initiative has made a large fraction of the citation data that link all scholarship freely available.
Publication Bias and the Canonization of False Facts
Publication bias, in which positive results are preferentially reported by authors and published by journals, can restrict the visibility of evidence against false claims and allow such claims to be canonized inappropriately as facts.
We present a deeper view of our 2015 financials, covering publishing and non-publishing expenses. As part of our ambition to change how science publishing works, especially among highly selective journals, we hope that being transparent about our costs will help to set a future course for research communication that is efficient and sustainable.
Scientists go to great lengths to ensure that data are collected and analysed properly, so why do they apply different standards to data about the number of times research papers have been cited and viewed?
