Description of Strategies for Cultivating Open Science: Overcoming Barriers, Fostering Global Equity, and Incentivizing Responsible Practice
- Identify and change cultural attitudes and elements of institutional culture that are potential barriers to the implementation of Open Science practices.
- Provide researchers with the necessary resources and infrastructure to support responsible Open Science practices.
- Recognise legitimate differences in attitudes and readiness to engage in Open Science between different fields of science.
- Recognize the potential for global inequities in access to Open Science infrastructure and act to promote global justice and support the needs of researchers in low- and middle-income countries.
- Re-evaluate current institutional and national level incentives and evaluation systems to align them with Open Science practices.
- Recognize and reward researchers for their contributions to Open Science, such as data sharing, publication of preprints, citizen science, and open-access publications.
- Analyse and address the potential for gender-, ethnicity-, age-, disability-related, and other biases in research and act to ensure that responsible Open Science practices promote equality and diversity.
- Promote Open Science practices in the industry sector.
