UPDATE 1 July 2020
Our Open Letter action is now part of Campaign for Open & Trustworthy Science hosted on JOGL - a platform where users can launch their projects and collaborate with others to solve problems using open science, responsible innovation, and continuous learning! They partner with academic labs, companies, startups, foundations, NGOs, and public services to create participatory research programs for understanding and solving health, environmental, social, and humanitarian issues.
And thanks to JOGL we already have our first helpers!
Please help with your feedback and ideas reviewing and improving our JOGL page, so we can make sure all your concerns are addressed.
3 components of the campaign:
- The Open Letter to be revised, finalized and signed, must be short and clear to be read and understood by everyone.
- Links to sources and evidence documents - directly from the Open Letter, and many others in the separate file Sources and Evidences in support of the Open Letter
- This public discussion forum to ask and answer any questions related to the campaign.
- CURRENT STAGE: Listen to everyone’s feedback, concerns, thoughts and ideas.
- Finalize our Open Letter “Our Science is in Danger and we need Your Help!“, addressed to world’s research funders who are in an unique position of power and independence to initiate this process of change.
- Widely circulate to gain as many supporters and signatures as we can, and continue looking for more outreach and dialogue.
- Send to research funders, and everyone in power to convince them, to work towards making this change happen.
- Ensure backing by researchers and their institutions.
- Establish an open global community to promote this process of change, and ensure everyone’s voice is heard and concerns are respected.
