Hi Jo,

You're on for a Repofringe roundtable on Thursday after lunch, 2-3.

If that's not okay, let Stuart know asap and he might be able to switch you with another roundtable on Wed. but the final programme is going up in the morning and the person you would switch with is an out-of-towner.

Glad of the responses. Perhaps we are looking for a declaration rather than a definition. To say "we are doing Open Scholarship because we are doing X and Y". Then wouldnt have to be too exhaustive or qualified...

Not sure when is the session planned for? Am otherwise engaged on the 4th most of the day :/

This is part of why I'm not comfortable making a more formal definition of the term. I especially like Cameron's last sentence! Cheers, Michael
