Description

A workshop about the not-for-profit, academic-run Canadian Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) Commons (hsscommons.ca)–an in-development, national-scale, bilingual (French and English) network. The Canadian HSS Commons fosters an open environment for Canadian researchers to share, access, re-purpose, and develop scholarly projects, publications, educational resources, data, and tools. It includes a subject repository for open access publications that assigns digital object identifiers upon upload and follows FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) guidelines for data management; a project development environment that can integrate with Google Drive, Dropbox, or GitHub; individual user profiles, with federated login/identity authorization, including with ORCID; blogging capabilities; subject interest groups; tools to facilitate member interactions (e.g., profile building, and messaging); and more.
