help researchers use the
power of the open web to
change science’s future.
science is broken
- broken incentives, discouraging collaboration + sharing.
- inﬂexible, siloed tools (and communities)
- research that’s near impossible to build upon, reuse.
- small bursts of activity, little coordination.
- skills gap keeping researchers from working on the web.
“... up to 70% of research from academic labs
cannot be reproduced, representing an enormous
waste of money and effort.”
- Elizabeth Iorns, Science Exchange
“There’s greater reward,
and more temptation to
bend the rules.”
- David Resnik, bioethicist
facing a digital skills gap
shifting practice is hard.
... but not impossible.
“One worry I have is that, with reviews like this, scientists will be
even more discouraged from publishing their code [...] We need
to get more code out there, not improve how it looks.”
our systems’ visions need to be in sync.
does this ensure (full) interoperability?
collaboration are key.
design for interoperability.
