Open Science Projects Collaborate on Joint Roadmap

May. 11, 2018

A group of organizations building nonprofit, open-source tools for scholarship and publication has joined with open-science researchers in a new collaboration to develop a Joint Roadmap for Open Science Tools (JROST).

While open technologies and services are becoming essential in science practices, so far, there has been no holistic effort to align these tools into a coherent ecosystem that can support the scientific experience of the future. To draw this missing map, we’ve formed the Joint Roadmap as an informal group of like-minded people and organizations with shared goals. To date, the following organizations are participating: Berkeley Institute of Data Science (BIDS)bioRxivCollaborative Knowledge Foundation (Coko)CrossrefDat ProjectEarth and Space Science Open Archive (EESOAr)eLifeHypothesisITHAKAJupyter ProjectMozillaOpen Journal Systems (OJS), The Center for Open Science with Open Science Framework (OSF)ORCIDPublic Library of Science (PLOS)Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC)Wikimedia, and Zotero, joined by researchers: Samantha Hindle and Daniel Mietchen.
