My most important digital pledge would be ...

I will support measures to make publicly funded research available to UK taxpayers at low or no cost

        As a UK scientist arguing for this kind of thing I strongly support this - but it is a lot more complex than the others as much of this is beyond simple parliamentary control. What I'd certainly like to see is a presumption of public access to the final outputs of publicly funded research (except where ethical and personal data issues preclude it) and a general push towards doing much better on the interim results as they come out - or if they've never formally released. Much opportunity for improving the efficiency of publicly funded research.

        So far as published scientific research is concerned, this means supporting open manuscript repositories, open access journals and/or new hybrid publication models.
