Making the Web Work for Science
Science Commons designs strategies and tools for faster, more efficient web-enabled scientific research. We identify unnecessary barriers to research, craft policy guidelines and legal agreements to lower those barriers, and develop technology to make research, data and materials easier to find and use.
Our goal is to speed the translation of data into discovery – unlocking the value of research so more people can benefit from the work scientists are doing.
