OpenAIRE: Towards a scholarly commons
OpenAIRE Open Access Week
Webinar: OpenAIRE: Towards a scholarly commons
What does it mean to be a part of the scholarly commons? According to FORCE11, the scholarly commons is an agreement among researchers and other stakeholders in scholarly communication to make research open and participatory for anyone, anywhere. It is not another sharing platform, but a set of principles, concrete guidance to practice, and actions towards inclusivity of diverse perspectives from around the globe.
In this webinar, the authors investigated OpenAIRE's role in achieving this scholarly commons, through their work concerning the OpenAIRE Guidelines on metadata interoperability, as well as publication models and services for the Open Access Transformation.
