Welcome to the PathOS Open Science Resources Hub! 

PathOS aspires to serve as a gateway to a wide range of resources that shed light on the effects of Open Science and aid in crafting effective policies. To this end, we have developed and curated essential tools such as the Open Science Indicator Handbook, a curated Zotero library tracking the academic, societal and economic impacts of Open Science Library literature, portfolio of Open Science Stories and more. Our evolving collection will also include a Tools & Data for impact measurement, and frameworks for Open Science impact pathways and cost-benefit analysis as well as comprehensive training resources & materials.
