[science-at] An inclusive approach to open science

Your approach sounds great! My only concern is that by including words such as “source code” and “data” you address some specific fields (eg., cs, physics) that have already made great progress in being open (cf. arxiv.org). With a more general formulation, e.g. something like “processes and products of scholarly communication” you could avoid that and also address people in other fields.

I also think that “open science” should also restrain from a purely paper-centric publication model (“only the paper count”) and acknowledge other forms of publications (datasets, blogposts, tools). This brings us to the altmetrics discussion (http://altmetrics.org/manifesto/), which I find very important, because it is also about incentives for scholars to follow an open science approach. Maybe you should include this point in the petition.
