Encouraging Open Science Practices in Minority Serving Institutions
Our field partner Open Research Funders Group (ORFG) is interested in encouraging Open Science Practices (OSPs) among traditionally underrepresented academic institutions. ORFG’s key hypothesis is providing a small amount of funding to such institutions for targeted interventions can kickstart a broader movement towards open science practices. ORFG is in conversation with several funders to support such interventions which could form a part of a larger field experiment testing the value of such funding. Here we propose to evaluate a smaller pilot ORFG is running with one funder to disburse about $100k to traditionally underrepresented institutions for OSP interventions.
