Open peer review in Janeway. My (MPE’s) weekend hacking activity was… | by Janeway Dev Team | Feb, 2021 | Medium

“My (MPE’s) weekend hacking activity was to build out open peer review in Janeway. That is, like in F1000’s system, the ability for reviewers to consent to their reviews being shared alongside the published article.

While this sounds like a major structural change, because of Janeway’s architecture it was actually pretty easy to do. It took 2hrs 45 minutes. The first thing I did was to add a setting to every journal that allows the editor to enable or disable open peer review….”

Library Publishing Pain Points – Aging Infrastructure | Library Publishing Coalition

“We strongly support community-owned open source scholarly communication infrastructure (we have been building our own open platform, Fulcrum, to support digitally-enhanced book publishing), so it was an easy choice for us to select Janeway (from the Birkbeck Centre for Technology and Publishing) for our next-generation journals platform. We’re hoping to move all of our active journals off DLXS in 2021 or 2022, and transition them to a much more industry-standard JATS/HTML-based workflow that can play well with both existing content conversion tools and vendor offerings. We also plan to build an integration between the two platforms so that Fulcrum’s rich media capabilities can be embedded in Janeway journal articles….”

EarthArXiv announces new partnership with California Digital Library to host earth sciences preprint service – Office of Scholarly Communication

“The Advisory Council of the EarthArXiv preprint service for earth sciences is pleased to announce a partnership with the California Digital Library (CDL) that will support EarthArXiv’s mission, future growth, and long-term sustainability. Core to this partnership will be the transition of EarthArXiv’s preprints server – including public display and submission management – from the Center for Open Science to the eScholarship Publishing program at the CDL.

CDL will host EarthArXiv using Janeway, an open source publishing platform developed by the Centre for Technology and Publishing and the Open Library of Humanities at Birkbeck University of London. EarthArXiv’s Advisory Council will maintain ownership and control over the preprint server, while the eScholarship Publishing team will contribute to the development, support, and maintenance of the Janeway platform.

Since its founding, EarthArXiv has partnered with the Center for Open Science to host its content online. Recently, however, financial considerations made it necessary for the Advisory Council to explore alternative hosting partners. “After several organizations stepped up to offer new partnerships (for which EarthArXiv will always be grateful), the Advisory Council voted unanimously to partner with the team at the California Digital Library,” said Bruce Caron, one of the founders of EarthArXiv….”

Janeway: Boldly Going Where No Platform Has Gone Before

Janeway is a journal platform designed for publishing scholarly research material. Open source and developed in the open, with a modular plugin system, this session will allow participants to meet the development team and to explore the functionality of the platform.”
