    Advancing Open: Views from Scholarly Communications Practitioners
    (Canadian Association of Research Libraries, 2020-04-30) MacCallum, Lindsey; Barrett, Ann; Vanderjagt, Leah; Buckland, Amy
    This report identifies key priorities and ideas from the Canadian Scholarly Communication practitioner community who participated in Advancing Open, a “a unique (and free) opportunity for the Canadian academic library scholarly communication practitioner community to convene and explore refreshed strategies to foster open scholarship (including open access, open data, and open education) in Canada.” This event helped identify practitioner-led directions and solutions designed to increase the uptake and commitment to open scholarship that will support a future-ready and competitive Canada where citizens have full access to their institutions’ world-class scholarly research. In turn, this report has been written for the scholarly communications community in Canada to a) use as a discussion instrument with academic library leaders and decision makers and b) strengthen both vertical and peer-level strategic alignment for advancing open scholarship in Canada. The report will also help the scholarly communications community set its own priorities for grassroots action.
