@yogthos I wish this also included some discussion of for-profit academic publishing and the awful way in which the Big Four publishers use unpaid academic writers, editors, and peer reviewers to turn government grants into private profit. It's a major driver of this whole credibility problem.

@yogthos There are a lot of researchers, non-profits, and tool builders who are working to change those incentives. A significant number of them can be found through working groups here: rd-alliance.org/
