Introducing the Open Scholarship Knowledge Base (OSKB), a free repository of open practice education and training resources.
As the adoption of open and reproducible practices grows, so too does the need for high-quality, up-to-date instruction. That’s why we’ve partnered with open advocates from the global research community to create the OSKB.
Now research educators and stakeholders can quickly point to the OSKB as a tool to support the learning, application, and training in open practices for their communities. Plus, the OSKB integrates effortlessly with virtual learning environments as more institutions shift toward remote collaboration and coursework.
What are we doing? And why?
Our Project Roadmap outlines our approach: Build a knowledge base platform and a community of contributors to organize information on the what, why, and how of open scholarship so it is easy to find and apply. Contributors keep the information up-to-date and curate modules for self-learning or teaching.
Who are we?
We are a community of volunteer advocates working with researchers, educators, and anyone interested in open scholarship to build a knowledge base so that researchers and users can discover and apply open practices.
Spearheaded by volunteers at a research conference, we are a group of diverse individuals aligned by a shared goal to make learning and applying open research practices easier.
How can I contribute?
The OSKB is being built by and for the community it aims to serve. Researchers, teachers, funders, librarians, and anyone wanting to open scholarship are welcome to edit, curate, and contribute to this community resource.
