Following the report Knowledge Exchange Approach to Open Scholarship and in line with the recommendations resulting from the workshop Moving from Ambition to Reality, Knowledge Exchange are working on two interconnected activities dedicated to the Economy of Open Scholarship; one conceptual, one practical.
The practical activity - Insights into the Economy of Open Scholarship: A Collection of Interviews - has collected examples which illustrate how pioneering initiatives set up and operate new or alternative business models in the area of Open Scholarship.
Interviews have been conducted with a selection of initiatives, in order to illustrate the successes and challenges within the economy of Open Scholarship. The purpose of this practical investigation is to inform and inspire a transition to Open Scholarship. Through a collection of interviews, including highlights and current trends, the collection displays how pioneers and early adopters of openness pave the way for unhindered access to research outputs in relation to research community needs and practices.
The first three interviews of this series are now available below. Knowledge Exchange plans to publish the full collection of interviews in summer 2019.
