Scholarly Commons and Decision Trees: What, Why and How

“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. Though a FORCE11 initiative, the scholarly commons is owned by no one, to be realized, used and contributed to by all.” From www.scholarlycommons.org

I've posted a piece here that introduces some exciting work I've been doing with the FORCE11 Scholarly Commons Working Group over the past 18 months. It's about truly tackling the practicalities of Open Research practice in a technologically bumpy world. Would have loved to post it here too, but we're trying to stay true to the concept of good versioning, so if you're interested, please head over to the FORCE11 site and take a look.
