@toniasutherland I’m here for a conference too. We leave Sunday. Maybe we can grab a drink???
@toniasutherland Omg Shiv and I are in Montreal rn too!
Themes of coordination, collaboration and incentivization continue through @lariviev closing keynote. Effects of funder OA mandates minimal without infrastructure and policies that support & incentivize process, and without meaningful consequences for non-compliance. #force2018
@jordanclaire Noooooooooo! I’m sorry being so close to the Bulk Barn was too good to be true.
@rmazar If you’re doing it right, probably!
Love @KristenRatan’s suggestion that we pivot from “how do we make research more open?” to “how do we make research more effective?” Seems like a much better way to engage researchers, leadership, etc. in the open cause. #force2018
I’m particularly thinking about this in the context of academic libraries. How do we empower all staff to think about their soft power, to know how to wield it, to wield it responsibly? #force2018
Wondering how we can we can structure organizations, roles, projects to more effectively support these kind of long-game efforts. #force2018
1.5 days into #force2018 and it’s become so clear that schol comm work (in the broadest sense) is a soft power game: building trust to identify real needs/barriers, designing/aligning with incentives, finding champions, building consensus.
