Research giving revolution is a new student and young researcher driven, mentor supported revolutionary movement for more giving, kinder, and open scientific practices to tackle replication and other scientific crises for a better world. We conduct ultra-rapid reviews (3 to 10 hours) and quality assessments for top researchers, update Wikipedia and provide resources to make it easier for researchers to make methodologically higher quality (e.g. share data and materials, pre-register studies, follow reporting standards) and more impactful research (based on effective altruism principles).

We are currently running pilots (see below). If you are interested to join as a student/young researcher, experienced researcher, citizen scientist and learn ultra-rapid literature review skills or support the project fill the form at this link.  For more information about the project contact touko.kuusi@helsinki.fi

Our methods:

Kuusi Touko, Kunnari Anton and Knittle Keegan. “When Methodologies Conflict: Developing Tools to Compare and Select Appropriate Methodologies for Conducting, and Appraising Evidence from Systematic Reviews.” In Cochrane Colloquim and 10th Duodecim International Symposium, 2018. (in progress, upcoming, independent research project)
We have developed multiple novel tools for conducting micro reviews and assessing the quality of evidence and plan to cover these in future conference presentations and scientific articles.

Regivolution conflicts of interest policy:

Regivolution does not accept funding from drug companies, or other private enterprises that would reduce the credibility as organization in light of its goal to create more impactful giving, kinder, and open scientific practices to tackle replication and other scientific crises for a better world. No student/young researcher in micro review team can have financial conflict of interest related to topic at hand. We also carefully monitor any intellectual conflicts of interest of review team members. Our project is only 1 year old, has been based on volunteer effort so far and we are currently applying for funding from various reputable sources.
