<Apologies for cross posting>
I have just returned from a two day workshop looking at the 'Scholarly
Commons'. Never heard of it? You might want to read on...
"Taking a Principled stance - the Scholarly Commons"
https://unlockingresearch.blog.lib.cam.ac.uk/?p=919 is a blog about the
FORCE11 event, now published in /Unlocking Research/.
It only rains about 10 days a year in San Diego. And Tuesday was one of
them. In a rooftop room on campus in San Diego at UCSD, a group had
gathered for theFORCE11 Scholarly Commons workshop
workshop brought together members of the Scholarly Commons working group
hail from around the world and come from the broad scholarly commons.
The Scholarly Commons is an idea to help define the future of research
communication.*The goal is to promote the best research and scholarship
possible through rapid **and wide dissemination to all who need or want it.*
We were meeting to discuss the draft of 18Principles of the Commons
an attempt to define what the community considers the attributes and
behaviours of a person who is fully participating in research.*The
Principles are broadly separated into four major themes of being Open,
Equitable, Sustainable and Research & Culture Driven*.
Read it and join in if you are interested...
