Today I read this article about quiting Academia.edu. I started to think what makes different Academia.edu from other profit driven companies like Github - encouraged as an advantage of Zenodo in the same article. Later in the day I learn PaperHive was a thing (a company, in fact). Lurking their site I wondered how they were different from Hypothes.is (a non-profit). That drove me to discover the Annotating All Knowledge coalition. And I moved on to start this database.

This database is a work in progress. I wanted to map the open science ecosystem for a time. This is still very biased, though I don’t know how. I just took the list of participants in the Annotating All Knowledge coalition and added some information to some of them. You can contribute at @ajspadial/open-sicence-initiatives, if you feel like it.

Disclaimer: I’m especially interested in tools and services, so maybe this database will drift towards them, or prioritize them, in the future.
