The open science practices identified will be used to inform the development of an automated open science dashboard which can be deployed by biomedical institutions to efficiently monitor adoption and educate researchers in various open science practices. The dashboard will build on previous work by our team, including the Charité Dashboard on Responsible Research and the Curtin Open Knowledge Initiative (COKI) Open Access Dashboard. It will be implemented using open-source code, and require no intervention, bureaucracy or reporting on the part of the researcher. By establishing what should be reported in an institutional open science dashboard through a consensus building process with relevant stakeholders, we aim to ensure the tool is appropriate to the needs of the community. This approach might also increase the chances of uptake and implementation. Our approach might also be useful to other disciplines contemplating institutional dashboards.
