Better Together Indeed!

Coko has been featured in Alice Meadows’ Scholarly Kitchen post Better Together, in which Alice reasons that in order for scholarly communications to advance more quickly and efficiently, we must collaborate.

In this article Alice noted:

“As Kristen Fisher Ratan of the Collaborative Knowledge Foundation said in her inspirational keynote at last month’s FORCE2018 conference, it’s time for us to stop squabbling and start collaborating to make research more effective. The recently published UN special report on climate change and dire warnings from their biodiversity chief make it abundantly clear that, if humans have any hope of surviving, we need to take action — and we need to do so now. We can’t afford to waste any more time focusing on our differences, we need to find our common causes and focus on making (rapid) progress with them.”
