- To support improvements to the functionality and usefulness of protocols.io.
The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $200,000 to ZappyLab, Inc (doing business as “protocols.io”) to support improvements to the protocols.io platform. Currently, many research papers are published with insufficient detail and are not updated, which creates problems and inefficiencies related to scientific reproducibility. Protocols.io’s platform is designed to address these problems by providing a free, up-to-date, crowd-sourced repository of science methods.
This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on scientific research.
