The Open Scholars Project (OSP) is a community of practice for researchers and practitioners who are curious about open access publishing, open science, and FAIR data at Florida State University and in the Tallahassee area. OSP includes faculty, graduate students, postdocs and practitioners. The goal of this community is to connect researchers and scholars from all disciplines and provide a supportive space to learn from each other, engage in candid discussions, and apply open principles to research practices.

All members meet once a semester at the OSP Symposium and OSP graduate fellows meet virtually once a month. OSP first convened in 2021 and is funded through FSU Libraries’ strategic initiative program. 
All members can participate asynchronously through our email list, Discord server, Github resource repository, or sign up for the Open Science Circular monthly newsletter. If members are interested in getting more involved, they can contact the Open Scholars Project taskforce.
