Internal vocabulary often provides barriers to discussions. After the OpenCon 2014 satellite event in London, two early career researchers, Jon Tennant and Ross Mounce, realised that it’s still too difficult for many people new to Open Access and Open Data to understand key terms which the community uses.
The Open Research Glossary is designed to be a resource to inform people about the culture of ‘open scholarship’. Initially released as a PDF, the glossary will be availablie in a variety of other formats and it's updatable by the community.
You can update the Glossary on GoogleDocs.
