Professor Nielius Boshoff at Stellenbosch University and Dr Lai Ma are co-editing a special issue, Impact of Open Research: Challenges and Opportunities in the ‘Scientific Periphery’, to be published in Online Information Review. They invite contributions to address the impact of the open research agenda on research and scholarship in the scientific periphery, including topics such as epistemic injustice, epistemic diversity, multilingualism, decolonisation, knowledge practices, publication practices, research infrastructure and scholarly communication. The open research agenda can also be more widely interpreted, beyond open access, to address issues related to open research data and open peer review.
Please submit an abstract (approx. 500 words) with the subject line ‘OIR Impact of Open Research’ to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 15, 2022. More details can be found here.
