  1. Valuing Openness
    1. How can open scholarship be valued? How does it contribute to assessments of different positions within academia? What counts as scholarship? Does building something (code, an app, a physical object) count? Is the degree of openness with which scholarship is shared considered? What are alternative ways of measuring impacts? What are the appropriate ways of copyrighting (or copylefting) scholarship?
