Open Science Chain (OSC)

Licensed according to this deed.

Published on


OSC, built using distributed ledger technologies (consortium blockchain), allows researchers to provide metadata and verification information about their scientific datasets and update this information as the datasets change and evolve over time in an auditable manner. A distributed ledger or consortium blockchain is ideally suited for research and academic environments where organizational collaboration is common and security efficiencies and scalability are preferred over the computational overhead of cryptoeconomics and anonymity.OSC features a web-based portal with user-friendly interfaces for data registration, search and verification capability along with client tools to access the platform. Additionally researchers can develop "research workflows" linking data entries in the ledger creating an auditable record of the data workflow process behind the research findings.
