I pledge to be a good scholarly citizen. This includes:
- Opening all data generated by me for the purpose of a publication at the time of publication. 1
- Opening all code generated by me for the purpose of a publication at the time of publication.
- Freely distributing all published material for which I have the right, and fighting to retain those rights in situations where that is not the case.
- Fighting for open access of all materials worked on as a co-author, participant in a grant, or consultant on a project.
I pledge to support open access by:
- Only reviewing for journals which plan to release their publications openly.
- Donating to free open source software initiatives where I would otherwise have paid for proprietary software.
- Citing open publications if there is a choice between two otherwise equivalent sources.
I pledge never to let work get in the way of play.
I pledge to give people chocolate occasionally if I think they’re awesome.
Finally, in honor of Rebecca Rosen’s call, I pledge to support equality by refusing to participate in scholarly panels of 4 or more individuals if all of them are white men.
