Researcher Bill of Rights and Principles

Printer-friendly version

The ongoing transformation of scholarly communication and access to research outputs has prompted the development of a variety of statements of principles and rights of researchers.  This Working Group aims to gain the insight of the leaders of these efforts to guide our work in consolidating these exemplar statements into a draft set of Researcher Bill of Rights and Principles that states how individual practitioners should fit into the wider scholarly communications landscape.


Outcomes: Researcher Bill of Rights and Principles

The outcome of this working group will be a single document that provides a common blueprint for future researcher-led declarations around the world.


Working Group Membership

Membership to the initial phase of this WG will be by invitation only.  This is so we can collect existing documents and collaborate with their authors on our initial draft. However, in subsequent phases, we will open our draft for general review and comment.
