Dear everyone,

As you may have noticed from previous discussions both through mailing
lists and during OKFest, the idea to have an Open Science Census has
emerged. Inspired by the Open Data Index, the Open Science Census will aim
to track openness commitments in the domain of science and research -- and
will be a powerful tool for advocacy, among others.

In order to get a more focused discussion going on how such a Census could
materialise, Jenny has set up a wiki page:

In a previous email, I suggested the Census to focus on several different
topics: at the national level, we may wish to survey open access
publications policy, open research data policy, notebook/protocol
availability policy, evaluation of research practices and inclusion of
openness in these. These are, however, tentative topics and I am just
providing them as an initial discussion point.

We can naturally use the wiki and these mailing lists to address a possible
Census scope and format. I would also suggest we have a dedicated hangout
before Christmas, say 17 December 4:30pm GMT.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon,

"Change l'ordre du monde plutôt que tes désirs."
