I quickly went through the first 40 questions of the Open Science proposal.
Many questions about science and publishing would currently be off topic here on Open Data. However, there is a strong overlap on data related questions, which could be a starting point for collaboration, in whatever shape or form.
The full analysis
I categorized the 40 questions into science, publishing, and data related questions.
Here is what it looks like from my point of view:
Then I checked if the questions of each of the three categories would currently be on topic, on the edge, or off topic here on Open Data.
The results, according to my personal judgement:
What does this mean?
There are a lot of science related questions that would currently be completely off topic here (e.g. How do I convince my collaborators to do open science?).
There are also a lot of publishing related questions that would currently be off topic (e.g. What is a 'predatory publisher'?).
Unsurprisingly, the most interesting category is data. Almost all of the questions would already be on topic or at least on the edge here on Open Data. Only 2 data related questions would probably be off topic (How can I give study participants the usual assurance that their data won't be misused, but still openly share my raw data? and Should data and other information be shared as it is collected/written, or should publishing wait until the study is complete?).
The fact that most data related questions would be a good fit for Open Data came as no surprise. However I personally find it irritating that there are 4 data related questions that are not specifically related to science. Even worse, the question Are there any version control systems for datasets? is one of the most up-voted questions here on Open Data and already has some great answers.
In addition to the Open Science proposal, there is also an Open Source proposal underway. I'm quite sure that there will be some overlap as well …
