Open Scholarship

We work to contribute to the establishment and enhancement of a well functioning Open Scholarship eco-system

2020 JISC Knowledge Exchange Feb JHartfiel_46

Knowledge Exchange aims to take on activities that make a difference.Our ambition is to support the partner organisations to perform better and contribute to the establishment and enhancement of a well-functioning Open Scholarship eco-system. We decided to use the term Open Scholarship instead of Open Science as it is more inclusive towards the Humanities and Social Sciences.

Following the development of the KE OS framework (2017) and the publication ‘Moving from ambition to reality' (2018), KE's work was first focused on the economic arena of Open Scholarship and experts have worked on the following three activities:

In early 2020, we formed the Open Scholarship Expert Group. In this group, we share knowledge, address emerging issues, and focus on joint development within the area of Open Scholarship / Open Science. We will work on the following new topics:

  • PID's: Risks and Trust
  • FAIR data and software supporting reproducibilty
