Delightful Open Science delightful

Open Science is an umbrella term for a wide range of (proposed) structural changes in the ways science is done. It ranges from Open Access publishing, publishing manuscripts, open peer review and pre-registration of analyses, to open data, open protocols/methods and open source, as well as methods to make data and code Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR). Persistent Identifiers for research objects make such an ecosystem of Open Science tools work. Some include performing science in public and easier ways to collaborate in Open Science. Also involving more people in science is generally included, as well as better methods for the assessment of science, which is the foundation of most problems in science.

This Open Science list is open, just like Open Science itself. What is delightful is rather subjective, because of the background of the initiators the list has started quite nerdy and focussed on infrastructure and scholarly communication. Please help and add more information by adding an "issue" or making a pull request (both options in menu above), especially on topics around reproducibility, meta-science and outreach, where this list is weaker.
