People-powering the open science revolution
Scholarly publishing is broken
The scholarly publishing system is inefficient, expensive, and promotes questionable research practices. Intense competition between researchers discourages us from embracing solutions to these problems ('Open Science'), for fear we might risk our careers in the process. Our mission is to ‘kickstart’ progress by first organising a critical mass of support for Open Science practices (e.g. Open Access publishing) and then acting in a coordinated manner to instantiate these practices as new cultural norms.
