Over the past decade, open scholarship has become a key component of our increasingly networked world. Open scholarship encompasses open access to research, open datasets of academic and government material, and open educational resources. Proponents for open scholarship assert that in order to reach its full potential research output needs to be widely accessible to many different communities, instead of locked behind paywalls or in unfindable or incomprehensible formats. This idea is gaining prominence in local, national, and international contexts as public calls for accountability grow and library budgets shrink in the face of mounting costs for access to research....
Engaging Open Social Scholarship seeks to highlight open social scholarship activities, infrastructure, research, dissemination, and policies. The INKE Partnership has described open social scholarship as creating and disseminating research and research technologies to a broad, interdisciplinary audience of specialists and non-specialists in ways that are both accessible and significant. At Engaging Open Social Scholarship we will consider how to model open social scholarship practices and behaviour, as well as pursue the following guiding themes:
Community: How do we best foster humanities and social sciences research, development, community building, and engagement through online, omnipresent, and open community spaces?
Training: How can we adapt existing training opportunities, and develop opportunities in emerging areas, to meet academic, partner, and public needs for open scholarship training?
Connection: How can humanities and social sciences researchers collaborate more closely with the general public? What are the best ways to bring the public into our work, as well as for bringing our work to the public?
Policy: How do we ensure that research on pressing open scholarship topics is accessible to a diverse public, including those who develop organizational or national policy?..."
