2020 AoBP ECOS Awards


The AoBP ECOS Awards (Early Career Open Science) aim to promote and celebrate people who are changing science for the better. People who are willing to go against the grain of hype-driven science. Willing to resist cynical citation-chasing. Willing to share their data, code, and ideas. Willing to stand up for those who have been historically excluded or mistreated in science. Willing to publish negative results. Willing to promote others who respect these things.

Rather than spend AoBP’s meager budget paying for booths at conferences and buying email distribution lists, they have decided to reward young people who are changing science for the better!
