Open Science Badges

The American Journal of Primatology (AJP) is happy to announce that it now offers all submitting authors the following two Open Science badgesfrom the Center for Open Science (COS) — Open Materials and Open Data. Authors will have an opportunity at the time of manuscript submission to determine whether they wish to participate. Applying and qualifying for Open Science badges is not a requirement for publishing with the journal, but these badges are an incentive for authors to participate in the open science movement and thus to increase the visibility and transparency of their research. Further information about the program is available in the Author Guidelines. See also Open Science Badges.
