With this invited presentation as part of the joint EIFL/COAR/OpenAIRE panel sessio "Equity and inclusion: community-owned infrastructures for open science", Janneke Adema talks about what COPIM as a project is currently learning from other projects, including CLACSO and the DOAJ, EIFL, COAR and OpenAIRE, around what good governance is and how we can ensure it is indeed community-focused and directed. Hopefully once we are a bit further along in the project I will be able to share more about our own experiences of setting up community-led governance structures, which is what we will be focusing on in the next couple of years. Janneke starts by highlighting the collaborative nature of the research I present here today which has been developed together with COPIM members and supporters, and draws strongly on the insights and establishments of other community-led publishing projects we draw our inspiration from. This presentation draws on the work Janneke has been doing with COPIM colleagues Sherri Barnes, Eileen Joy, and Samuel Moore, and in particular on a series of blogposts written together with Samuel Moore reflecting on a Community Governance workshop we hosted this year. The discussions with the workshop participants directly informed these blogposts. They were posted on COPIM’s Open Documentation Site on PubPub, where we are indeed openly documenting the research we are conducting and the progress we are making within the project.
