Practical Guidance for Promoting Open Science in Developing Countries

Items tagged with oa.south in Open Access Tracking Project (OATP) 2023-04-23


"Open science is growing as the mainstream in developed countries and is promoted by UNESCO. However, Open Science still needs to achieve its diversity, equity, and inclusivity (DEI) goals; indeed, the movement needs to catch up in the developing world. Recently, researchers from developing countries have started to make their voices heard, calling for a re-design of open science to suit developing countries (Onie, 2022, Nature), support for grassroots open science networks (Jin et al., in press, AMPPS), and to avoid potential harm (Ross-Hellauer, 2022, Nature).  Although these arguments may attract some attention to Open Science in developing countries, without actions, there will be no changes. Actions need practical guidance and examples, especially for early career researchers. Here, we are calling for co-authors for an invited paper that will be published in Advances in Methods and Practices in Psychological Science, a leading outlet focused on promoting open science methods and practices. Specifically, we are seeking co-authors for a paper that can provide practical guidance/examples for actions to promote open science in developing countries. We emphasize practical solutions and examples that are feasible and within reach of researchers in developing countries. Thus, we invite colleagues from different regions/countries to share their experiences, examples, and practical suggestions specific to their sociocultural backgrounds.  This paper will collect practical solutions for researchers in different developing countries, with both a global view and fine-grained granularity to specific countries. It will provide a practical guide for researchers who hope to promote open science and DEI, as well as insights for policymakers, funders, and other stakeholders interested in promoting open science practices in their respective regions or countries. ..."
