Meaning Scholarship as a whole... There have to be some common sets of aims...

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...

Do you mean Scholarship or Science? They are significantly different> 

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
