Open Strategy Network (OSN)

The RLUK Open Strategy Network is a professional peer network for RLUK members leading Scholarly Communication, Open Science, Open Research, Open Scholarship and related activities within member libraries.

These professionals are an integral part of research at institutional, national and international levels, oftentimes acting as facilitators, partners and collaborators. The growth in demand for such services is reflected in the evolving terminology; the widespread terms ‘Open Access’ and ‘Scholarly Communication’ are being joined by ‘Open Science’, ‘Open Research’, and ‘Open Scholarship’ in relation to library staffing and services. There is a need to bring together leaders in these areas to provide peer and sector support, and to encourage joined-up thinking at a national level.
