We can improve scientific communication to increase efficiency in the accumulation of knowledge. This requires at least two changes to the present culture.  One change is conceptual - embracing that progress is made more rapidly via identifying errors in current beliefs than by finding support for current beliefs.  Such a shift could reduce confirmation bias, unproductive theory testing, and the blinding desire to be right. The other change is practical - science will benefit from improving technologies to document and connect the entire lifecycle of research projects. This presentation will focus on the practical aspects, illustrated through the efficiencies gained via the Open Science Framework and its add-on connections to Dataverse and Figshare.  The presentation will specifically talk about how research support teams (ie. data librarians, repository managers, and others) can utilize these tools to help their users improve daily workflows.
