Join the More Open Access Pledge!
The pledge is an initiative by early- and mid-career researchers from around the world. The goal is to push for wide availability of research findings.
Despite significant movement towards Open Science, many practitioners, policymakers, and citizens still can not access the latest evidence. And in the 21st century, that should not be the case..
Pledging means submitting 1 manuscript to an Open Access outlet (peer-reviewed OA journal or a pre-print server, to make it feasible in terms of resources) by the end of the year.
More details on the pledge are available via this blogpost or the website of the Global Young Academy (and on Tuesday, there will be a longer blogpost on the Research Whisperer).
