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

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 Science and experts worked on the three activities; Insights into the Economy of Open Scholarship: A Collection of InterviewsOpen Scholarship and the Need for Collective Action and Openness Profile.

In early 2020, we formed the Open Science Expert Group, who share knowledge, address emerging issues, and focus on joint development within the area of Open Science. The OS Expert Group are currently working to explore new topics including PID's: Risks and Trust and FAIR data and software supporting reproducibilty.

You can find out more about the Open Science Expert Group via the link at the side of this page, and more about our Open Science activities and reports, below.

Risks and trust in pursuit of a well functioning Persistent Identifier infrastructure for research

Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) and their infrastructures are argued to be of significant strategic importance to the increasingly digital reality of modern-day research. We aim to better understand what is needed to build and exploit a well-functioning PID infrastructure.
