The research landscape is complex, and different actors have different options to help with a systemic move towards open science.
In this thread, I would like us to explore which options research publishers have to encourage open science in-house as well as in the communities and other stakeholders they interact with.
If you have multiple ideas for concrete actions, I suggest to post them as separate answers (rather than as one monolithic answer), so as to facilitate the discussion and refinement of your ideas.
As per this article, introducing badges for sharing into a journal seems to have motivated some psychologists to share more:
We report an increase in reported data sharing of more than an order of magnitude from baseline in Psychological Science, as well as an increase in reported materials sharing, although to a weaker degree. Moreover, we show that reportedly available data and materials were more accessible, correct, usable, and complete when badges were earned. We demonstrate that badges are effective incentives that improve the openness, accessibility, and persistence of data and materials that underlie scientific research.
Ask Open Science used to be called Open Science Q&A but we changed the name when we registered the domain ask-open-science.org. Everything else stays the same: We are still hosted by Bielefeld University Library.
