News Release from Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL): 

 

The Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) and the Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) are collaborating to facilitate Canadian support of international open infrastructure through the Global Sustainability Coalition for Open Science Services (SCOSS). Under this initiative, Canadian institutions will contribute toward the sustainability of selected key international services in the open scholarship ecosystem.

 

SCOSS aims to help sustain essential open scholarship infrastructure. In doing so, SCOSS brings together a community of experts to evaluate critical open science services that lack sustainable financing, and then encourages institutions worldwide to financially support the services that it recommends.

 

Through the collaboration between CARL and CRKN, Canadian institutions will have the option of supporting SCOSS-endorsed services collectively. Benefiting from CRKN’s national infrastructure, CARL and CRKN members can contribute at reduced rates. This increases efficiency, reduces administrative overhead, and has the potential to increase Canadian participation.
