Defining the Scholarly Commons LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

The digital age is seeing an informal convergence within the scholarly communication space: the Natural and Health Sciences, the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, applied and professional fields are all discovering that they have more in common when it comes to the future of research communication than differences. What is needed now is a program that will help us realize the potential of this merger: the development of a “Scholarly Commons.”

The Scholarly Commons is not a single platform or tool, but rather the principles, best practices, interfaces and standards that should govern the multidirectional flow of scholarly objects through all phases of the research process from conception to dissemination.

FORCE11 has launched a program designed to define and incubate the idea of the Commons. We are conducting a series of workshops and exercises to examine the best thinking around the world about what is required for a scholarly communications ecosystem designed for 21st century scholarship.

This workshop will provide an overview of the program, disseminate results to date for feedback and provide a forum for discussion and community engagement around this important topic.
