Incentives and Rewards

“An ideal collaboration market will enable an exchange of questions and ideas. It will bake in metrics of contribution so participants can demonstrate the impact their work is having. Contributions will be archived, timestamped, and signed so it’s clear who said what, and when… This will change science.”3

Rapid Science is strategizing with funders, policy makers, biomedical researchers, social scientists, academic administrators and technologists, to formulate new incentives and rewards that recognize open research practices. Processes and tools promoted by Rapid Science are designed to facilitate recognition of individual team member contributions toward this goal.
