For context on the nature and purpose of Theme Groups, as well as a complete list of Theme Groups and their definitions, please visit this page's parent, Theme Groups

Scholarly activities listed as part of each Theme Group are harvested from contributions to Themes pages during the community design period between Workshop One and Workshop Two. Lists of scholarly activities are not intended or expected to be comprehensive. Making the included activities more comprehensive and defining each at an appropriate level of detail is expected to be an activity of working groups in the period between Workshops Two and Three.


"Share/Publish" encompasses a full range of informal to formal modalities of communicating scholarly objects - from digital data sets to formally constructed and fully vetted (e.g., peer-reviewed) scholarly analyses. It may be reasonable and appropriate to consider this theme-group a close relative - or even a superset of - the Engage theme group, which focuses on sharing and publication outside the formal (institution-centric) universe of scholarship.
