The Open and Collaborative Science in Development Network – OCSDNet – is
one of the key openness initiatives supported by the IDRC. The project is
being jointly coordinated by iHub based in Nairobi, Kenya, and the Centre
for Critical Development Studies at the University of Toronto Scarborough,
and supported by an international team of expert advisors [6].

The OCSDNet, which launched in July of this year, intends to mobilise and
support researchers and practitioners from the global South [7] through a
multi-stage project development process.

*The goal of the project is to build a community of open science
practitioners whose research and practices would deepen our understanding
of the nature and impacts of open research and knowledge co-creation.*
