FABBS empowers department chairs and organizations by offering resources and guidance to integrate open science principles into their operations. By consolidating expert recommendations, insightful materials, and practical tools, FABBS promotes the adoption of transparent and accessible research practices, fostering scientific progress across mind, brain, and behavior disciplines.
- View the presentation Aligning Incentives with Institutional Values, which highlights the disconnect between higher education institutions’ stated values in support of Open Access and the traditional incentives that drive faculty’s research behaviors away from open practices. This resource was created by Michael Dougherty to present to FABBS council members.
- Read the Guide to Accelerate Public Access to Research Data by the Association of American Universities (AAU) and the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU) which explores the structural hurdles, from the administrative to the faculty level, that prevent open science practices.
- Read the HELIOS case study which describes the University of Maryland’s successes in aligning open science and promotion and tenure within their psychology department.
- Read Open Access and the Direction Moving Forward from the Scholarly Kitchen for a description of the persistent problems in implementing Open Science practices, and for recommendations for funding agencies and research institutions.
- Read the NASEM Open Science – Developing a Toolkit for Fostering Open Science Practices: Proceedings of a Workshop and the accompanying Open Science by the Numbers Infographic from the Open Science Framework for an introduction to the benefits of open science including driving innovating and broader social impact, increasing efficiency and speed, and improving trust and research quality. It also includes ways organizations can support the growth of open science and examples of projects who have successfully implemented open principles.
