Templeton World Charity Foundation, Inc (TWCF) seeks to support rigorous science within Sir John Templeton’s mandate. To maximize the potential impact of such research we want to recognize all scholarly contributions of scientists and at every stage of the discovery process. We also recognize that some metrics intended to serve as proxies for quality, such as journal impact factor, can skew the incentives of scientists and detract from the quality of the research. To this end, we have signed on to the principles of the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA).
