The goal of this Working Group is to work on attribution implementation for any research products (including publications, datasets, data standards, research resources, etc.). The purpose is to collate and review existing efforts on scholarly contribution taxonomies; determine if a consensus implementation, which would meet the requirements for all projects and would include the capability to be extensible from a core taxonomy, is possible; and attempt to develop and pilot test the consensus implementation.

The goal of this Working Group is to map the landscape of the community-developed standards, and develop a set of metrics to measure their status, use and popularity, for example their endorsement and implemementation in policies and databases. Progressively, this WG will work on principles for linking information about databases, content standards and journal and funder policies in the life sciences. Read More and Join this group.

Chair: Werner Liebregts
Winner of the FORCE2015 1k Challenge. The current review process of scientific articles is outdated. Only a few reviewers assess the quality of papers before publication. Many more experts read them after publication, have a strong opinion about their contents, but are hardly able to share it to a wide audience. Academics would greatly benefit from crowdreviewing, a post-publication peer review (PPPR) process in which anyone who has read a scientific article is asked to review it according to a standardized set of questions. The Community is invited to actively participate in online discussions about how to review scientific articles in a good way. Additionally, this project will run a pilot project on crowdreviewing scientific articles using ScienceOpen platform for open access (OA) publishing. Community Discussion.
