About the talk:
Open scholarship, or unrestricted access to scholarly research and resources, is a topic of significant public, policy, and government concern, as illustrated by numerous national and international statements. Over the past two decades, opportunities have emerged to expand open scholarship and reshape the longstanding tradition of publishing research in closed formats, encouraging more accessible, participatory, interactive, ethical, and transparent approaches, that reach far broader and more diverse publics. This talk addresses the need for fundamental research to underpin and guide strategic transformation of national and international open scholarship policies into practice for the humanities.
