"Open Access and Open Social Scholarship
This course will survey pertinent research in Open Access (OA) methods, theory, and implementation, and it will look forward to open social scholarship. Overall, we will consider the role of OA knowledge dissemination in academia and at large. We’ll focus on the history, evolution, forms, and impact of OA within the domain of scholarly communication. Specific topics of discussion include advocacy, infrastructure, intellectual property rights, research evaluation metrics, online journals, databases, and peer review methods and limitations in this context. Using OA as a foundation, we will discuss the rising trend and potential impact of open social scholarship, which involves the creation and dissemination of research and technologies to a broad, interdisciplinary audience of specialists and non-specialists. This course will be geared toward students, librarians, scholars, publishers, government representatives, and others who are invested in the open development and sharing of research output."
