PubSweet meet time in London! I think its our third PS event…anyho…a cool bunch of people meeting to present what they are working on. Awesome updates from xpub-collabra, xpub-eLife, and xpub-Hindawi plus PubSweet and the two working groups (Dev WorkGroup, Design WorkGroup)…. one day done, 2 to go! Pics from the first day…
We got a very nice mention here 🙂
In terms of new publishing infrastructure, the emerging open source toolkits from Coko, the Collaborative Knowledge Foundation, stand out as an exciting new development. Coko supports community efforts to build useful techy stuff for open science. To get started, they focus on publication tools. Their workflow toolkit “Pubsweet” avoids the monolithic approach of commercial providers and instead allows almost limitless customization, via flexible components. In principle, every journal or book publisher, small or large, could stitch together the workflow of their dreams, pulling in various building blocks that may already be around, and/or developing own, interoperable components if needed.
