Open Scholarship “encompasses open access, open data, open educational resources, and all other forms of openness in the scholarly and research environment, [and] is changing how knowledge is created and shared.” – Association of Research Libraries
Below are my current efforts of being / becoming an open scholar:
- Open Access. My research articles or preprints are accessible on ResearchGate. My presentation slides are on SpeakerDeck, while older ones are on SlideShare.
- Open Educational Resources. My course materials are hosted on Github, which currently include courses on learning analytics, social network analysis, foundations of technology in education and business, and tech and ethics in society. Materials of workshops I organized are also mostly on Github: LAK 16 temporality, knowledge building analytics, data visualization with R, etc.
- Open Participation. I tweet, and sometimes annotate the Web.
- Open Source. I try to open-source my R code on Github, for Lag-sequential Analysis, building lexical frequency profile, Twitter analytics 1 and 2, making CORDTRA diagrams, etc.
- Open Scholarly Workflow. Open Scholarship does not only involve the “outputs,” but also the “process.” I frequently post my annotated bibliography here. To get my raw highlights and rough notes to this format, I use: 1) Skim and MetaPDF for reading & annotating; 2) some R scripts I wrote for text transformation; and 3) Jekyll for text rendering on the Web.
