Open Climate Knowledge #OCK https://github.com/petermr/climate
This call is for a first round of analysis to establish statistics on rates of FOSS licencing for code used in research software for climate change.
Open Climate Knowledge (OCK) is an open research project with the objective to urgently make research related to climate change 100% open. Research publishing related to climate change currently appear to only be at <30% open access. (Tai and Robinson 2018)
There are two steps to enable the transition of climate change research to being fully open.
- Firstly, gathering statistics on the rates of openly licensed works and
- secondly, to create a plan and recommendations to accelerate the push forward full open licensing of research.
