Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE) Partnership for Open Social Scholarship (2019–2026)
Building on INKE’s successes (SSHRC MCRI 2008–2016, and ongoing collaboration since then), the next phase of our collaborative exploration of new knowledge environments focuses on conjoint research toward open social scholarship. The Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE) Partnership for Open Social Scholarship brings together key researchers and research partners to advance understanding and resolve crucial issues in the production, distribution, and widespread engagement of digital scholarship in Canada.
Our team has a breadth of expertise in, and a commitment to, alternative scholarly communication. We work closely with experts to develop national level policies, responsive frameworks, and scholarly best practices that embrace open social scholarship, including through ongoing education, skills training, and awareness-building initiatives. We come together to develop open social scholarship and to facilitate the most productive use of its modes and methods.
In 2019–2026, INKE research and development will be carried out across four activity clusters: Connection, Training, Community, and Policy.
