Within the freely accessible Internet-based digital infrastructure, new communities are forming and growing whose aim is to seek innovation in the process of knowledge building, exchanging, re-assembling and delivering. While those involved in those creative activities are prompted by various motivations, a common belief is often shared that knowledge cannot be considered an exclusive property of those who discovered it. Benefits will follow, in terms of feedback from peers and on the financial side as well, by spreading out results, under the least restrictions as possible, while invoking international law to protect authorship rights. Among the many fields involved, special relevance is given to the broadly scientific and educational areas due to their impact on society as a whole. Here, within the new collaborative knowledge creation and sharing framework two main components can be identified:

  • the open source inspired way to broaden the educational community through the developing and sharing of learning content ('open content development');
  • the open access model, the meeting point of a number of disciplines and approaches, information retrieval, library and information sciences management, knowledge management.
