This workshop report presents key outcomes of the Knowledge Exchange workshop at the FORCE2019 conference held in Edinburgh, October 2019. The main purpose of the workshop was to test and gain community feedback on the Open Scholarship Framework, using it while addressing issues such as research evaluation, FAIR and Plan S. The report provides some recommendations for next steps towards further utilisation of the Framework, potential use cases, and other follow-up actions.
The workshop showed that:
