FORCE11 was founded to propel Scholarly Communications into the 21st century by taking advantage of the computational revolution and network-based technologies. At a minimum, these new technologies require that scholarly artifacts be produced in both human- and machine-readable form. At a maximum, new technologies let us rethink the form of scholarly communications and our obligations as scholars and researchers for knowledge dissemination.  
Many proposals have been put forth, and dozens of charters, declarations, and manifestos have been issued addressing one or more dimensions of reforming scholarship. A dizzying array of platforms and tools have been launched toward this goal. Newcomers to the field, or those without a technological background, may find all of these proposals and tools confusing. What does “open” mean and why is it important? What is a “research object”? What does FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable) mean and how can I achieve it? What alternatives are there to our current system of credit and attribution? 
In this course, we will answer these questions while presenting some of the visions put forward for how scholarship should function in the 21st century, and examining what tools and approaches are being used to successfully transform and, in some cases, disrupt current models of Scholarly Communications.
