Grants to Connect Tools and Services for an Open Science

Posted by n.chuehong on 4 August 2015 - 12:24pm

The Center for Open Science has grants available to connect their open source Open Science Framework (OSF) with the tools and services that researchers use, in particular Dryad, BitBucket and Zenodo. 

The free, open source Open Science Framework (OSF) connects services across the entire research lifecycle to promote research efficiency and reproducibility. For example, OSF is integrated with storage providers Box.com, Dropbox, Amazon S3, figshare, GitHub, Google Drive, and Dataverse, and citation management tools Zotero and Mendeley. However, there are hundreds of tools and services that researchers use everyday to create and manage research protocols, collect and analyze data, author manuscripts, submit and review articles, track impact, and search and discover others research.

Grants for $8,000 - $10,000 for this work are available. Proposers must commit to making all code available as open source with an Apache 2.0 license. Applicants may propose working on multiple integrations. Proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis, but no later than August 12, 2015 at Midnight EDT. Decisions will be made quickly so that teams can receive funding and initiate their work.
