Objective 3: Advancing Research Quality and Value
The Berlin Alliance partners will pursue a joint agenda for developing and promoting the value, quality, integrity, and credibility of research. In order to achieve this goal, the Alliance will create a Center for Open and Responsible Research (CORe) that will structure and coordinate an implementation process for value-based research governance elements and policies. In close collaboration with CORe, the Alliance will foster Research and Reflection on Research Quality (R3Q), thus providing a nucleus for researchers already involved in meta-research. The Berlin OpenX Initiative will develop and support incentives for research openness and transparency, and it will help to develop an error culture (“Fehlerkultur”) that values such openness.
