Research Ideas and Outcomes (RIO)

Earlier thRIOis year the Research Ideas & Outcomes (RIO) journal was launched. RIO’s mission is to open up the entire research cycle — by publishing project proposals, data, methods, workflows, software, project reports and research articles. These will all be made freely available on a single collaborative platform.  The first grant proposal made openly available on RIO was published by a physicist — Finnish-born Toma Susi, who is based at the University of Vienna in Austria.  An interview with Susi about his proposal, and his experience of publishing on RIO is available here:
