Researchers see sharing their research openly as a risk. Many researchers are concerned the won’t get academic promotions, or their research will be scooped if they share it publicly. Open Stories seeks to solve that problem by gathering success stories of Open advocates and practitioners to show that a successful Open career is possible. Open Stories will re-frame the conversation from risk to communicating that an open successful career is possible. By engaging researchers who are skeptical about openness with stories of others they identity with, we can create change. This presentation will overview the status of the project, open for a discussion on how to improve the project, and overview how attendees can contribute stories whether their own during FORCE or by hosting recordings sessions when they return home after the conference.
