Report from the HSS & Scholars Workgroup

Abstract / OSI2017 Workgroup Question

The HSS Scholars and Scientists workgroup was convened in recognition of the diverse dynamics and requirements of different research communities, particularly within the Humanities and the Social Sciences (HSS). Within these disciplines there are significant differences in research culture, practices, and access to funding, highlighting that a different approach may be required to embed an open science environment.
