At the Scholarly Commons San Diego workshop, it was pointed out that like other scholarly communication initiatives, North American and Western European perspectives had dominated the work of the Scholarly Commons and its draft principles.

In response, a subgroup was formed to examine the ways in which the Scholarly Commons initiative had excluded diverse and important perspectives, perpetuating a problematic understanding of scholarly communication and participation that could disenfranchise scholars and other stakeholders in the Global South.

The goal of the subgroup is to create recommendations for improvement and best practices for the work of the Scholarly Commons and other initiatives to improve scholarly and scientific communication. Through a series of open community calls, asynchronous collaboration, and an in-person workshop in Santiago, Chile, the sub-group aims to contribute to and advance the conversation about how a scholarly commons could “meaningfully be built for and by researchers in the global south” and other communities (as descibed in "Making the Local Global: The Colonialism of Scholarly Communication".
