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- The open scholarship landscape changes quickly, so materials can become outdated.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