Yes. Implementing badges is associated with increasing rate of data sharing (Kidwell et al, 2016), as seeing colleagues practice open science signals that new community norms have arrived.
For this to occur, badges must be visible on the table of contents and authors must be consistently asked to participate. See the current issue of Psychological Science for an example of how these new norms look in practice.
It is probably NOT sufficient to simply offer badges to the authors (see Rowhani-Farid 2020) absent of any other cues. We suspect (and welcome further investigations) that visibility of this pro-social behavior is high and that norms require time to change, perhaps 2 to 5 years.
