"A Grand Challenges-Based Research Agenda for Scholarly Communication and Information Science" is a call to action to do research promoting the creation of durable, open, equitable, and meaningful global access to knowledge creation and consumption in its many forms. There are collaborative opportunities to improve the scholarly ecosystem by creating a coherent and reliable evidence base for open scholarship through well-designed strategic research. Enticed by the grand challenges, in the fall of 2018, Arizona State University, the University of California Los Angeles, MIT, The Ohio State University, and the University of Pittsburgh jointly supported a visiting scholar at the MIT Libraries. Professor Philip Cohen (Sociology, University of Maryland College Park) worked with researchers at MIT and stakeholders in the community to develop a framework for performing better empirical evaluations of new open science interventions including open peer review. In this session, we will use the grand challenge recommendations to spark a discussion about ways libraries can jointly support additional targeted work to promote, inspire, and support evidence-based research.
