We are delighted to announce the formation of SIGOPEN and the launch of sigopen.org.
The Special Interest Group on Open Research and Practice (SIGOPEN) was chartered as an affiliated SIG of the AIS on December 13, 2014 by the Association for Information Systems Council.
SIGOPEN will provide a forum for members to discuss, develop, and promote a range of issues related to open research and practice. SIGOPEN is designed to be inclusive of researchers investigating and engaging in a wide variety of open phenomena and practices, but will initially focus on three core areas of interest:
- Peer Production of Knowledge Goods e.g. open source software, hardware, content and design; collaborative economy; sharing society; corporate influence; social change; modes of distribution; etc.
- Collective Intelligence, Action and Resources e.g. open innovation; the wisdom/wealth/power of crowds; social media in extreme events; citizen science; volunteer computing; crowdsourcing/funding; etc.
- Open Science and Education e.g. open data/access; publishing and data management conflicts; open teaching and learning; micro-scholarship; open peer-review; etc.
The Mission of SIGOPEN is to support and promote:
- The development and sharing of knowledge and research resources among AIS members and the larger community of practitioners and scholars.
- Research related to IT enabled open phenomena among AIS members and the larger community of practitioners and scholars.
- The practice of open approaches to the development and dissemination of scientific knowledge among AIS members and the larger community of practitioners and scholars.
- Open education and learning activities among AIS members and the larger community of practitioners and scholars.
Stay Informed and Get Involved
Over the coming weeks we’ll be populating the site with more information about SIGOPEN, and will be importing and expanding existing resources from http://openresear.ch and elsewhere.
Keep visiting back or follow us at https://twitter.com/sigopen to stay aware of developments and to get the conversation started.
SIGOPEN also maintains an email list, open to all, for the discussion, development, and promotion of issues related to open research and practice. To subscribe to the SIGOPEN email list visit: http://lists.unomaha.edu/mailman/listinfo/sigopen.
Finally for SIG membership information, please visit the Association for Information Systems. We should have our SIG integrated with the AIS systems shortly.
