Our mission is to increase openness, integrity, and reproducibility of research.

These are core values of scholarship and practicing them is presumed to increase the efficiency of acquiring knowledge.

For COS to achieve our mission, we must drive change in the culture and incentives that drive researchers’ behavior, the infrastructure that supports their research, and the business models that dominate scholarly communication.

This culture change requires simultaneous movement by funders, institutions, researchers, and service providers across national and disciplinary boundaries. Despite this, the vision is achievable because openness, integrity, and reproducibility are shared values, the technological capacity is available, and alternative sustainable business models exist.

COS's philosophy and motivation is summarized in its strategic plan and in scholarly articles outlining a vision of scientific utopia for research communication and research practices.

Because of our generous funders and outstanding partners, we are able to produce entirely free and open-source products and services. Use the header above to explore the team, services, and communities that make COS possible and productive.

Census, surveys and research studies conventionally identify three tenure classes -owner-operators, part-tenants and tenants - in Bangladesh. Some sources identify two more classes-part-operators and absentee owners. Conceptual deficiencies of these 3 or 5 type tenure classifications are discussed and alternative conceptual framework is suggested for identifying and classifying tenure relationship. Applying the suggested framework, 17 different tenure relations were identified in a sample of 385 farms.

The obtaining of quantitative data for economic analysis of changes in the agricultural use of land has been a problem in recent years. Field study is a slow and expensive method of providing information. Usually, it requires several experienced persons to collect the data needed. The airphoto interpretation method described in this article supplies suitable data for economic studies with considerable savings in time and cost. With this method, a minimum of personnel is needed.

As land represents more than half of the investment in agriculture in the United States, it follows that the nature of its ownership is related to the public interest. Our national supplies of food and fiber depend upon the output of the land. Title to it as he wishes. He may let it lie idle or exploit it. Also, the rights of ownership it confers upon the owner the right to use he may cultivate it; he may conserve it or provide the basis for the sharing of its returns. Data covering the ownership of farms by operators are available from the Censuses of Agriculture as far back as 1880.
