Who is responsible for managing Channels and Rooms? Is there a mediator?
Generally, the Open Research Community (ORC) seeks to solicit contributions from a wide variety of Open Access experts. The members of the board of the ORC are expected to be making regular contributions to its Channels. ORC Rooms can have both members and contributors. To be added to one of these rooms in these roles, one can send an email to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. The mediating role of the ORC is minimal, since as long as the materials posted to its Channels and Rooms are in compliance with its terms and conditions as well as community policy, they will not be removed. Likewise, as the ORC is dedicated to facilitating discussions around Open Access topics, any community member can request his or her access rights to be expanded, such as to those of a contributing author, by sending an email to this address: email@example.com. Upon deliberation, one can also be assigned to the roles of either channel or room contributor. I manage those tasks so that I can be contacted directly as well: firstname.lastname@example.org.
