Jon Saklofske is a co-applicant and Community Cluster co-lead on "Implementing Open Scholarship: Foundations for Social Engagement at Scale," a project led by the Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE) Partnership and recently funded ($2.5 million) by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Partnership grant program.
The INKE Partnership--which includes nationally leading researchers and librarians across disciplines from Canadian universities, scholarly and publishing organizations, and the digital humanities--will work together to develop open, inclusive, and publicly engaged digital scholarship and training that serves both academic interests and society at large. Acadia University is one of many institutional and industry partners across Canada and Australia contributing to this 7-year research initiative.
Overcoming barriers to open scholarship, open data, and knowledge-sharing "is critical for facilitating public access to and engagement with research—especially during times of global upheaval," says project lead Ray Siemens (UVic).
