News Challenge - How can we strengthen the Internet for free expression and innovation? - Opening up research proposals

peter.suber's bookmarks 2014-03-25


"Research proposals are among the most closely guarded secrets in academia. If instead they were public, they would stimulate global collaboration, help funders find and connect with under-valued research, enable journalists to follow a broader arc of the research process — and much more, limited only by the imagination of Internet users and developers. To stimulate change, we want to build and populate a platform for sharing, tweaking, aggregating and archiving actionable research proposals. We will work with pioneers who have already shared research proposals publicly, and with funders sharing our interest in better proposals. We will conduct research to understand the potential for opening research proposals and the impact of doing so."
