Open Science is revolutionising the way people do research and share knowledge. In this context, it has become more and more important to identify what research outputs comply with good Open Science practices. OpenScore is a rating system that allows users to:
- Easily identify in what respect a certain paper follows good OS practises
- Interact with papers by rating them
- Peer reviewer

- Grant Management Officers (GMOs)
- Choosing which articles to read
- Planning and conducting a dissertation research project
Primary User Flows

Features to be implemented after the MVP
- Sign-in using ORCID
- Search for similar articles
- Journal weighting (e.g. Some journals require authors to share datasets, and others only recommend it. If authors are not required to upload a dataset but do it anyway, positive votes may count double)
- Rating datasets and metadata
- Open Science Badges integration
- Compare the composition of two different OpenScores
