The Canadian HSS Commons as an Open Social Scholarship Tool
Open, collaborative, digital scholarship is gaining increasing prominence in Canada and internationally. In our online world, the possibility to co-create and share knowledge across departmental, institutional, and social boundaries is more attainable than ever. A key endeavour of the Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE) Partnership is to collaboratively develop the Canadian Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) Commons. The Canadian HSS Commons is a national-scale digital research commons that will connect HSS researchers in order to accelerate research, development, community building, and engagement across the broad spectrum of specialists and active non-specialists in Canada. This talk will provide an update on the Canadian HSS Commons, with a focus on how this initiative can foster open social scholarship for humanities and social sciences practitioners.
