RIN Scholarly Communication Toolkit

We’ve been awarded a contract to develop a web-based toolkit to support key stakeholders (especially research funders, higher education institutions, libraries and publishers) to apply the common principles set out in an earlier RIN document, the Research and the Scholarly Communications Process: towards strategic goals for public policy.

I’m working with Robin Beecroft of Searchlighter on this project, which will run from March to November 2009.

The toolkit will provide guidance to relevant stakeholders in relation to each principle constituting the statement of principles, and their roles in applying them. It will encourage reflection on how the agendas of different stakeholders might be aligned behind common goals and conflicts of interests resolved.

In practice, I think this means we will need to create some community around the project if it is to live and grow beyond the initial design. So we’re looking for ideas on how to create online communities around projects. 

We’re currently in a research and consultation phase, surveying and interviewing people from across the scholarly communications spectrum. 

I’ll shortly create a separate blog for the project – watch this space for an announcement.
