<p>'Planning Southern Research on Open Educational Resources (OER)' was presented to the IDRC on 21 November 2011. It was intended to address the lack of empricial research on existing and emerging OER initiatives in the developing world (or Global South), a region that contained pockets of high-performing OER initiatives while being comparatively sidelined in global OER production and use. It proposed a long-term, multi-facted and multi-dimensional networked research project, using a combination of competitive small grants to researchers, direct engagement with selected research institutions and developmental work with under-resourced countries to develop a comprehensive body of OER research and policy. This proposal would go on to inform the ROER4D project proposal and scoping process in 2012 and 2013.</p>
