Ten simple rules for cultivating open science and collaborative R&D

This journal article in PLOS Computational Biology‘s long-running Ten Simple Rules series goes back to 2013, when a collaborative group of eight authors from around the globe pooled their thoughts together on the topic of open science and collaborative R&D. The conversations (linked to in this article) provide context and insight into the various projects — from the Gene Wiki initiative to the Open Source Drug Discovery (OSDD) project — that have required significant deviation of thought from the traditional company view of conducting business. From “lead as a coach, not a CEO” to “grow the commons,” the article’s authors provide their thoughts on what best makes for collaborative and open science projects.
