Open Science: Octopus

What is Octopus?

Octopus is a publication platform that promotes publication in smaller units to encourage meritocratic, effective, and collaborative scientific process. It accepts eight types of publications, namely (1) Problem, (2) Hypothesis/Theoretical Rationale, (3) Method/Protocol, (4) Data/Results, (5) Analysis, (6) Interpretation, (7) Translation/Application, (8) Review.
