Journal practices (other than OA) promoting Open Science goals (relevance, reproducibility, efficiency, transparency)

  • Early, full and reproducible content
    • preregistration – use preregistrations in the review process
    • registered reports – apply peer review to preregistration prior to the study and publish results regardless of outcomes
    • preprint policy – liberally allow preprinting in any archive without license restrictions
    • data/code availability – foster or require open availability of data and code for reviewers and readers
    • TDM allowance – allow unrestricted TDM of full text and metadata for any use
    • null/negative results – publish regardless of outcome
  • Machine readable ecosystem
    • data/code citation – promote citation and use standards
    • persistent IDs – e.g. DOI, ORCID, ROR, Open Funder Registry, grant IDs
    • licenses (in Crossref) – register (open) licenses in Crossref
    • contributorship roles – credit all contributors for their part in the work
    • open citations – make citation information openly available via Crossref
  • Peer review
    • open peer review – e.g. open reports and open identities
    • peer review criteria – evaluate methodological rigour and reporting quality only or also judge expected relevance or impact?
    • rejection rates – publish rejection rates and reconsider high selectivity
    • post-publication peer review – publish immediately after sanity check and let peer review follow that?
  • Diversity
    • author diversity – age, position, gender, geography, ethnicity, colour
    • reviewer diversity – age, position, gender, geography, ethnicity, colour
    • editor diversity – age, position, gender, geography, ethnicity, colour
  • Metrics and DORA

    • DORA: journal metrics – refrain from promoting
    • DORA: article metrics – provide a range and use responsibly
