Forum: The INKE Partnership for Networked Open Social Scholarship

Public Forum:
The INKE Partnership for Networked Open Social Scholarship

September 8th, 2016
Council Chamber (AA160), University of Toronto Scarborough | #INKEforum

The INKE Partnership is a collective of researchers and partners who are concerned with networked open social scholarship and the future of scholarly communication in the digital age. Networked open social scholarship involves creating and disseminating research and research technologies to a broad, interdisciplinary audience of specialists and non-specialists in ways that are both accessible and significant. It builds on a foundation of digital scholarship, social knowledge creation, open access, and digital humanities.

On Thursday September 8th we will discuss the broader scope of networked open social scholarship. We will also consider the following questions within this context: what are the best ways to how to mobilize knowledge across researchers and fields, and between academia, the public, and other invested stakeholders? What implications for policy implementation do open knowledge practices have? Which alternative modes or methods need to be developed or employed for effective open social scholarship? How can we develop initiatives collaboratively to best serve these ends?

Please join us for what is sure to be a stimulating day of presentations and discussions.
