Putting together the pieces: How can Communities support Open Scholarship?Panel discussion on Open Scholarship Communities
Open Scholarship can increase the quality, efficiency, and impact of science. The value of open scholarship has been recognised through at the policy level, however the adoption of open science practice has remained slow.
Meet and hear from a panel of members from the International Network of Open Science and Scholarship Communities (INOSC) as they share about how communities can support Open Scholarship, learn about the benefits and importance of Open Scholarship, and the opportunities & challenges to the adoption of such practices. This event will provide an opportunity for reflection and dialogue to help us better understand some unique experiences that have been encountered.The Panel
