Research Tools: Open Scholarship Knowledge Base Goes Live

From Brian Nosek, Executive Director, Center for Open Science:

From the Open Knoweldge Base Website:

Welcome to the Open Scholarship Knowledge Base community!

Discover open scholarship resources created and curated by the community.

What are we doing? And why?

The Problem

  1. It is difficult for people new to open scholarship ideas and practices to find and apply existing materials.
  2. It is difficult for educators to bring open scholarship concepts and exercises into their courses.
  3. The open scholarship landscape changes quickly, so materials can become outdated.

Our Solution

Our Project Roadmap outlines our approach: Build a knowledge base platform and a community of contributors to organize information on the what, why, and how of open scholarship so it is easy to find and apply. Contributors keep the information up-to-date and curate modules for self-learning or teaching.

Who are we?

We are a community of volunteer advocates working with researchers, educators, and anyone interested in open scholarship to build a knowledge base so that researchers and users can discover and apply open practices.

Spearheaded by volunteers at a research conference, we are a group of diverse individuals aligned by a shared goal to make learning and applying open research practices easier.
