The “Coordinating the Global Open Science Commons Interest Group” (GOSC IG) recently submitted its charter and is seeking comments from the RDA community. The charter is a brief summary of what the group plans to address, how it’s aligned with the RDA mission and how the group would be a value-added contribution to the community.
In the document, the group describes how it will "own the overall remit of coordinating the delivery of a Global Open Science Commons and monitor progress made within related RDA Working Groups and other initiatives to achieve this goal." It also details its intent to provide a neutral place where people have conversations about Open Science Commons and work to reach a shared understanding of what a “Commons” is in the research data space, what functionality, coverage and characteristics such an initiative requires, and how this can be coordinated at a global level.
