hi Danny,

The idea of  "an attempt to define what the community considers the attributes 
and behaviours of a person who is fully participating in research" can be 
interpreted as signalling a movement towards negative branding or deprecation 
of anyone the community considers less than pure according to community 
standards, as does this discussion point" "An agreement as to inclusion implies 
a concomitant agreement to exclude".

Is it one of the purposes of the group to attack or deprecate a "person" whose 
"attributes and behaviours" are not what this group considers to be "fully 
participating in research"? Perhaps I am misunderstanding - please advise.

Sustaining the Knowledge Commons: Open Access Scholarship

On 2016-09-22, at 9:19 AM, Danny Kingsley 

<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 the 
FORCE11 Scholarly Commons 
 The workshop brought together members of the Scholarly Commons working 
group<https://www.force11.org/group/scholarly-commons-working-group>, who 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 18 Principles of the 
 – 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...
