TL;DR: A survey of 998 scholarly journals that use Open Journal Systems (OJS), an open source journal software platform, captures the characteristics of an emerging class of scholar-publisher open access journals, distinguished by the number that offer open access to their content.
Abstract: A survey of 998 scholarly journals that use Open Journal Systems (OJS), an open source journal software platform, captures the characteristics of an emerging class of scholar-publisher open access journals. The journals in the sample follow traditional norms for peer-reviewing, acceptance rates, and disciplinary focus, but as a group are distinguished by the number that offer open access to their content, growth rates in new titles, participation rates from developing countries, and extremely low operating budgets. The survey also documents the limited degree to which open source software can alter a field of communication, for OJS appears to have created a third path, dedicated to maximizing access to research and scholarship, as an alternative to traditional scholarly society and commercial publishing routes.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors present reflections from the perspective of a knowledge mobilization (KMb) practitioner after 5 years of developing and delivering KMb services in a university-based environment and conclude that KMb is not a single event or process but a system, a suite of services that work together to support the multi-directional connection of researchers with decision makers.
Abstract: This field note presents reflections from the perspective of a knowledge mobilization (KMb) practitioner after 5 years of developing and delivering KMb services in a university-based environment. This field note is a “how to” based on experience from the field of KMb practice and places that experience in the context of academic literature. The paper concludes that KMb is not a single event or process but a system, a suite of services that work together to support the multi-directional connection of researchers with decision makers. The six KMb services that comprise the KMb system are informed by four broad KMb methods: producer push, user pull, knowledge exchange and co-production. Examples of each KMb service are provided along with key observations that allow others interested in developing institutional KMb support services to implement these services in their own context. The field note concludes with clear recommendations for individuals and organizations interested in developing their own system of KMb services.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors suggest that the potential adhesion of Argentina or other Latin American nations to Plan S ignores the reality and tradition of Latin American open access publishing, and that Latin America should invest and promote open nonprofit scholarly-led infrastructures, allowing the academy to regain control of scholarly communications.
Abstract: Background Latin America has historically led a vital and open access movement and leads the worldwide region with the adoption of wider open access practices. Argentina has expressed its commitment to join Plan S, an initiative from a European consortium of research funders with a mandate to promote the open access publishing of scientific outputs. Analysis This opinion article suggests that the potential adhesion of Argentina or other Latin American nations to Plan S ignores the reality and tradition of Latin American open access publishing. Conclusion and implications Plan S must demonstrate that it will encourage at a regional and global level the advancement of non-commercial open access initiatives. Latin America should invest and promote open nonprofit scholarly-led infrastructures, allowing the academy to regain control of scholarly communications. Keywords Plan S; Latin America; Open access publishingContexte Historiquement, l’Amerique latine a ete un chef de file dans le mouvement pour fournir un acces aux communications savantes qui soit vital et ouvert. Aujourd’hui, ce continent demeure un leader mondial en adoptant des pratiques de libre acces qui sont plus englobantes. L’Argentine, notamment, a manifeste son engagement pour se joindre au Plan S, lequel est l’oeuvre d’un collectif de bailleurs de fonds europeens dont le mandat est de promouvoir l’edition de recherches scientifiques a libre acces. Analyse Cet article d’opinion suggere que l’adhesion potentielle au Plan S par l’Argentine ou d’autres pays latino-americains ignore la realite et l’histoire de l’edition a libre acces latino-americaine. Conclusion et implications Le Plan S doit demontrer qu’il encouragera des initiatives non-commerciales envers le libre acces a un niveau regional et mondial. L’Amerique latine doit investir dans des infrastructures sans but lucratif qui soient ouvertes et menees par des universitaires, de maniere a permettre a ceux-ci de reprendre le controle sur les communications savantes.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors report on interviews with members of an international refugee research network about participating in global partnerships and suggest that both face many similar challenges arising out of structures and norms that privilege Northern, theory-based scholarship, institutions, and outcomes.
Abstract: Research partnerships are the foundation of successful engaged scholarship, which typically unites partners across disciplines, institutions, sectors, and countries. While rewarding and generative, these partnerships can also be challenging due to differences in expectations, power, and culture, and difficulties in trust and communication. This article reports on interviews with members of an international refugee research network about participating in global partnerships. Responses are interpreted in light of community university partnerships and South-North partnerships and suggest that both face many similar challenges arising out of structures and norms that privilege Northern, theory-based scholarship, institutions, and outcomes. Vigilance and awareness regarding context can help to confront these challenges. Moreover, global partnerships can benefit from strategies developed in the area of community university partnerships to facilitate trust, communication, and shared ownership of international research projects.

TL;DR: A fully integrated KTE approach developed over the past 20 years is described, key concepts related to knowledge user engagement as well as the integration of communications within KTE are described.
Abstract: Knowledge transfer and exchange (KTE) is a process of making relevant research information available and accessible for use in practice or policy. Integrated KTE, where knowledge users are engaged in the research process, is considered to better facilitate uptake and use. The objective of this paper is to describe a fully integrated KTE approach developed over the past 20 years. Key concepts related to knowledge user engagement as well as the integration of communications within KTE are described. The organizational KTE approach is flexible and can be adapted to a variety of research areas.
