How to initiate an Open Source Science project?
Got a great idea for an Open Source Science project? Great, let's get started!
Please note only registered users are allowed to initiate a project. We have found that transparency is critical to the success of large-scale collaborative projects. Hence, we encourage the use of collaboration and open-access tools (ex. shared cloud folder for data; accessible manuscript with viewing and potential editing rights; version-controlled public code base, etc). How each open source science project is run is entirely decided by the team. But please feel free to refer to a template for an Open Source Science project below.
