You have to read right to the end of this article to get today's word of the day: MOOP (Massive Open Online Publication). A lovely word. Anyhow, this paper focuses mostly on the definition of open scholarship, with an extended look at the histories of the related concepts of free and open source software (FOSS) and open science. The aurthors argue "there is substantial scope for new communities of practice to form within scholarly communities that place sharing and collaboration/open participation at their focus" but warn that "Open Scholarship risks being subverted and compromised by commercial players."
