With the academic sector making strides on both impact and open science, how can the two best connect in the publishing landscape? How can we shift from presumptions that open is enough for impact? And how can more collaborative endeavours between publishers and academia help build a healthier ecosystem?
As a reflection of the value of collaboration, “Open Scholarly Publishing and Knowledge Mobilization: Combining Two Initiatives to Achieve Social Impact” is co-authored by Julie Bayley (LILI), David Phipps (York University, Toronto), Tony Roche and Steve Lodge (both Emerald Publishing). The paper reflects on how open scholarship and knowledge mobilisation initiatives can combine in support of impact, drawing on the authors’ experience of jointly developing new approaches for Impact Literacy and Institutional health.
“Reflecting on impact, the contribution of open publishing and open science, and the experiences of an academic- publisher partnership, we consider how current signals of improved practice and improved academic-publisher relationships can evolve to enable the future of research impact“
