An Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE) Partnership and Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences Event
May 12, 2022, 10.45am – 2.30pm PDT (Victoria)
The second event in the Launching a Digital Commons for the Humanities and Social Sciences series will take place online on May 12, 2022, from 10.45am-2.30pm PDT (Victoria). It is intended for researchers, librarians, academic administrators, information and technology professionals, students, and emerging scholars. Participants will discuss issues relevant to open digital commons such as the Canadian Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) Commons (hsscommons.ca)—an in-development, national-scale, bilingual (French and English) network. The Canadian HSS Commons fosters an open environment for Canadian researchers to share, access, re-purpose, and develop scholarly projects, publications, educational resources, data, and tools. It includes a subject repository for open access publications that assigns digital object identifiers upon upload and follows FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) guidelines for data management; a project development environment that can integrate with Google Drive, Dropbox, or GitHub; individual user profiles, with federated login/identity authorization, including with ORCID; blogging capabilities; subject interest groups; tools to facilitate member interactions (e.g., profile building, and messaging); and more.
(Note: Part 1 of the Launching a Digital Commons for the Humanities and Social Sciences Commons event series took place on Jan. 24, 2022. Part 3 will be held in connection with the next annual Digital Humanities Summer Institute, on June 9, 2022.)
