Inclusivity - This paper examines research inclusivity in the context of current trends for open access publications and open data, citizen science developments and LIS education. The literature is reviewed and a portfolio of new LIS teaching, advocacy, research and design opportunities, drawing on selected projects, case studies and examplars, is presented. These are framed as “pathways toward research inclusion” and include producing inclusion-savvy LIS graduates, creating lay summaries as participation ramps, acting as a research inclusion advocate, developing LIS teaching resources inspired by citizen science modalities, and positioning public libraries as citizen science hubs.
