Generalized Idea Protcol (GIP) will allow us to track the evolution of ideas over time as well as quantify the similarity of two ideas. GIP will facilitate the efficient sharing of the ideas and prevent the community from reinventing wheels, thereby accelerating the pace of the scientific research.

The level of expertise or e-value of an entity (general individual, researcher, research group, organization, etc.) in a research domain D will be computed using e-function.

In OSO funding mechanism, there will be two voting stages:

  • Direction vote: the first voting stage decides the funding distribution to different research domains and projects
  • Matching vote: the second stage decides the matching of the funded projects to the funding applicants.

The review process will be open to the public. It will consist of two stages: initial review and perpetual review.
