OSI 2018 Summary Report

  • Glenn Hampson Executive Director, Science Communication Institute (SCI) Program Director, Open Scholarship Initiative (OSI)


The Open Scholarship Initiative (OSI) is an ambitious, global, multi-stakeholder effort to improve the flow of information within research and between researchers, policymakers, funders and the general public. OSI's main goals are to improve the openness of research and scholarly outputs, lower the barriers for researchers and scholars everywhere to engage in the global research community, and increase opportunities for all countries and people everywhere to benefit from this engagement. Closely connected to this work, OSI is also focusing on correcting a broad range of scholarly communication deficiencies and inefficiencies, for without these corrections, open will not be achievable or sustainable.
