I have also been thinking about doing something like this, possibly for a dissertation. The details seem very tricky to work out though. I came across this post in my feed reader recently: https://p2pu.org/en/courses/2377/open-research/
I wonder if that will help to shed some light on it. I don’t think that those of us who responded to this post are the only ones thinking about this type of research by any means. It would be valuable to hear the broader conversations about open research.
