The Catalyst program formalizes a network of professionals to advance the teaching, practice, funding, and publishing of transparent social science research. The overarching goal of this program is to connect and empower individuals to make changes in their own classrooms, in their universities, and across their network, thereby achieving far-reaching change.

In the United States, BITSS has identified 43 academics and research practitioners working in 31 institutions in 17 states as capable leaders in the open science movement.

How to Use our Domestic Catalyst Tracker:
Use your mouse to hover over a state or city to see which catalysts work there. A pop-up text box will appear when you hover. Click on the text box to pin it. You’ll be able to learn which institutions our catalysts are working at, what their discipline is, and a link that will open a new tab to their profile to tell you more about them!
