OSF Preprints | The Scholarly Commons - principles and practices to guide research communication
Despite all available technology and despite major disruptions that the internet brought about in many sectors of modern life, scholarly communication has only seen change at glacial pace. Many useful, laudable tools and services are being developed to solve specific issues for particular domain groups. However, the question of how these efforts fit together remains largely unaddressed. If we have alternative models for all parts of the system, will that result in a coherent system? Will it be interoperable? Will it appeal to people as viable alternative? Will it be open and participatory for all?

The solution we propose is that of a scholarly commons: a set of principles and rules for the community of researchers and other stakeholders to ascribe to, the practices based on those principles, and the common pool of resources around which the principles and practices revolve. The tenets of the scholarly commons are that research and knowledge should be freely available to all who wish to use or reuse it (open, FAIR and citable), participation in the production and use of knowledge should be open to all who wish to participate, and there should be no systemic barriers and disincentives to prevent either such free use or open participation.

In this paper, we outline the backgrounds of the idea of the scholarly commons and the various considerations that play a role in defining it. We share the principles of the scholarly commons and the degrees of freedom interpreting those principles, and consider the broader landscape of ideas and charters that the scholarly commons fits into. Finally, we present a call for action to involve like-minded people in the discussion on how to bring such a commons to fruition, and what this would mean for different communities within science and scholarship.

The Forum Network, hosted by the OECD | Bridging dividesBridging divides
Over the past 15 years, the OECD Forum has grown to become a major international conference that debates the most pressing social and economic challenges confronting society. At the OECD Forum, policies and ideas are shared by a growing community of leaders and influencers from government, business, civil society and academia. This site is designed to allow the OECD Forum community to extend their discussions and exchanges year-round and to expand the network to include those who cannot attend the conference in person.

The Forum Network is open for anyone to browse, read and share its content. To comment and contribute, you will need to join the network as a Friend - anyone may join. Friends are able to post comments and to ask questions (comments and questions will be moderated) and you may be invited to become a contributor.

The Evolving Scholarly Record
oclc 2014
This report presents a framework to help organize and drive discussions about the evolving scholarly record. The framework provides a high-level view of the categories of material the scholarly record potentially encompasses, as well as the key stakeholder roles associated with the creation, management, and use of the scholarly record.

Highlights
A confluence of trends is accelerating changes to the scholarly record's content and stakeholder roles.
Scholarly outcomes are contextualized by materials generated in the process and aftermath of scholarly inquiry.
The research process generates materials covering methods employed, evidence used, and formative discussion.
The research aftermath generates materials covering discussion, revision, and reuse of scholarly outcomes.
The scholarly record is evolving to have greater emphasis on collecting and curating context of scholarly inquiry.
The scholarly record’s stakeholder ecosystem encompasses four key roles: create, fix, collect, and use.
The stakeholder ecosystem supports thinking about how roles are reconfigured as the scholarly record evolves.
