“Beyond Open: Implementing Social Scholarship” seeks to highlight activities that focus on the engagement and implementation of networked open social scholarship. Networked open social scholarship involves creating and disseminating research and research technologies to a broad, interdisciplinary audience of specialists and non-specialists in ways that are both accessible and significant. At “Beyond Open: Implementing Social Scholarship,” we will consider how to model networked open social scholarship practices and behaviour, as well as pursue the following leading questions: What approaches to the development of workflows, tools, systems, technologies, publishing apparatus, protocols, policies, and initiatives best foster and encourage openness? How do we promote, record, archive, and study the evolving processes of engaging with data? How can we leverage existing resources in libraries and cultural institutions across Canada to provide regular opportunities for mentorship and training in core networked open social scholarship areas?
