Beyond Open: Implementing Social Scholarship

Researchers, universities, and funding agencies are becoming increasingly cognizant of the significance of open scholarship and are focusing on how to embrace and enact social contexts, roles, and activities. As academia continues on its trajectory towards more open and more social practices—including active collaboration, community building, and knowledge mobilization—opportunities arise to create knowledge across traditional disciplinary and institutional boundaries, as well as with members of the broader public. This potential for fostering dynamic linkages, diverse communities, and public interaction is a call to action and implementation. On January 10-11 2018 the Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE; inke.ca) Partnership held Beyond Open: Implementing Social Scholarship, a gathering that brought ~60 researchers, students, librarians, and academic-aligned groups together on the topics of scholarly communication, open access, and community engagement. This special issue is a snapshot of the event proceedings, organized around open social scholarship theory, infrastructure, and projects. Wide-ranging in content, the authors included here all come together under the banner of imagining more social, community-minded applications for academic work.
