pledges

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.
