The Amsterdam Call for Action on Open Science #2: 10% Open Science

Some of the discussions here are about data sensitivity, privacy, etc. Excellent points! One confusion that should be put aside is that you cannot be an open scientist if you do not release everything. That is nonsense, FUD perhaps.

The The Amsterdam Call for Action on Open Science may very well set some goals; I do not think it currently does. It may set a goal of 10% by the end of this year (already made, probably), 20% at the end of 2018, and 30% at the end of H2020. You can read this in many ways, and here too, things are very vague.

After yesterday I herald this approach! Would it not be brilliant if at the end of this year all scholars output 10% of the research as Open Science?! Go for it!
