NASEM Roundtable Releases Open Science Toolkit

From the Open Science Funders Group:

On September 30, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine hosted an event to commemorate the public release of Developing a Toolkit for Fostering Open Science Practices: Proceedings of a Workshop.


It contains modular elements that can be adapted and adopted for a range of use cases, including language for hiring, tenure & promotion, and grantmaking; primers on good practices for openly sharing articles, data, and a number of other resource types, and an Open Science Success Stories Database, which compiles research articles, perspectives, case studies, news stories, and other materials that demonstrate the myriad ways in which Open Science benefits researchers and society alike. Notably, the National Academies is publishing the toolkit under a CC-BY license.
