In addition, the OBC governance team conducted research into community-focused open knowledge organizations within the landscape of scholarly communications and better practices for the community governance of open infrastructures. Our consultations and research have informed us every step of the way as we have co-designed and co-developed a governance model that has been uniquely tailored to the mission of the OBC. Our key concern throughout has been that the governance of the OBC be membership-shaped, community-led, democratically representative, equitable, and transparent. Most paramount is that the OBC is and always will be directed and managed in accordance with the key values of the COPIM project. [...]
