Chairs and next step

Dear all,

We are very pleased to let you know that following on our public election process, we now have three chairs for the group: Sean Bechhofer, Rob Sanderson and Jun Zhao.

Now this is time to think about how to move on from here. Given the diversity of the group members, we agreed that it would be a good idea to start with a use case gathering process on the group Wiki, so that we can have more understanding about the motivation, background and expectations from individual members.

Currently we are working on a use case template and aim to release it to the list and group wiki in 3 weeks time. From there, then we can start gather a good list of use cases and build up more grounded understanding.

Please keep an eye on this exciting place and keep us posted of your thoughts!

Jun, Rob and Sean

Let’s elect a chair

Welcome all to the ROSC community group. Now with 45 participations in the group (by 2pm GMT 23 April 2013), we need to elect a chair. So I drafted an initial poll. I propose we vote for 2-3 chairs. So everyone can vote for 2-3 nominees.

[poll id=”1″]

Currently the poll has only 4 names. If you want to nominate names not on the list, p lease feel free to use the mailing list to propose additional names to the poll and I will add them.

The poll will be closed on Monday May 13, 2013.

Welcome to the Research Object for Scholarly Communication (ROSC) Community Group

Hi everyone,


It was really encouraging to see all of you around without having gone through a wide advertisement of the group. Welcome on board!

As a first step of the CG, I am starting with drafting our charter. I will post it here in the next few days. Please bear with me.

Thank you for your understanding and look forward to working together with all of you!

– Jun
