I’m working on a platform with the Public Library of Science (PLOS) in San Francisco. I’m Designer and Product Owner, and working with a talented team of approximately 15 full-time people. We are creating a platform for the production, processing, and publishing of science. It is a very versatile platform and could easily be utilised for many other purposes. Over the next months I’ll be blogging a little about some of the approaches we have adopted and highlighting some interesting technical solutions. The platform will be Open Source.
The platform is an HTML-first environment and includes ingestion of MS Word (and other formats) and conversion to HTML. I first presented some information about these strategies at Books in Browsers V last week in San Francisco. The video of my presentation can be found around the 26th minute here:
