Join us for short talks, demonstrations, and discussion – over coffee/tea and snacks – about academic collaboration and community in the context of open social scholarship. Growing from online practices that include open access, shared infrastructure, and citizen scholarship, open social scholarship enables the creation, dissemination, and engagement of research by specialists and non-specialists in accessible and significant ways. Presenters will explore areas of public-engaged research, publishing and dissemination, resource sharing, policy activism, and knowledge mobilization. Together, we will engage the underpinnings of open scholarship, and share examples of initiatives that serve our community, including the Canadian HSS Commons, the Open Scholarship Policy Observatory, the Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory, Coalition, the Lesbian and Gay Liberation in Canada project, ORCID-CA, the Public Knowledge Project, and the Canadian Social Knowledge Institute. More information available at:
