Projects -- COS develops and maintains infrastructure to support scientific practices, fosters open science communities of
software developers and researchers, coordinates collaboration among stakeholders in the scientific process (journals, funders,
IRBs, societies), conducts research on the scientific process (metascience), and creates incentives for replication and increasing
reproducibility of scientific results.
These projects promote open science, evaluate or improve reproducibility of scientific findings, and improve the alignment
of scientific practices to scientific values. All projects are interdisciplinary or are models to replicate across disciplines.
