Consulting Projects

COS partners with mission-aligned parties and special interest groups to address specific and nuanced barriers to scientific progress. The following groups and entities have contracted COS to solve open science related problems, influence the adoption of open practices, and advise on the policies and behaviors critical to the transparency and integrity of science.

At times, COS makes grants to individuals and organizations in support of open science initiatives. For COS grants of $50,000 or less, no overhead costs are permitted. For COS grants larger than $50,000, overhead costs may not exceed 15% of direct project costs.
