What are Contributorship Badges?
The Contributorship Badges project was announced late last year
<http://www.mozillascience.org/contributorship-badges-a-new-project/> as a
collaboration testing out the use of badges as a standardized digital
credential for the work done by each author on an academic article. Since
then, we’ve starting building a prototype that uses Mozilla’s Open Badges
<http://openbadges.org/> infrastructure to store and issue badges to an
author’s ORCID <http://orcid.org/> (a unique researcher identifier) based
on their contribution to a paper published by BioMed Central
<http://www.biomedcentral.com/> (BMC) or Public Library of Science
<https://www.plos.org/> (PLoS). The badges awarded are based on the 14-role
author contribution ‘taxonomy’
<http://dictionary.casrai.org/Contributor_Roles> being developed by
Trust <http://www.wellcome.ac.uk/index.htm>, Digital Science
<http://www.digital-science.com/> and others.
The Mozilla Science Lab is leading development on this prototype We're
encouraging researchers to contribute code, design and suggestions to
experience being part of an open source project.
Join us tomorrow @ 11am ET (May 20)
*To join the call*:
1. Open the call Etherpad
2. Join the Hangout on Air
This call is for designers, developers, researchers, publishers and anyone
interested in participating or learning more about the project. We could
use all sorts of input on this (beyond just code), so if you’re new to open
source, come join us – we’d love to have you involved.
*Please note: this event will be recorded*
We want to help researchers learn how to leverage the web by building
within the open source community. By encouraging participation in an
ongoing project, more researchers will experience best practices in open
source and learn how to run their own projects in a way that engages the
community and builds skills. This builds on a core belief part of our
pedagogy here at Mozilla
the most transformative moments often come from *working on things that
matter*, *building them together*, and *empowering others* to get involved..
