SciELO Preprints server completes two years of operation, contributing to the advancement of Open Science | SciELO in Perspective

The positioning of the SciELO Program as an open science program, provided for the creation of a preprints’ server, announced in 2017. In September 2018, during the SciELO 20 Years Week, the partnership between SciELO and the Public Knowledge Project (PKP) was launched with the objective of developing an open source preprints server based on the already consolidated Open Journal Systems (OJS).

IndiaRxiv Relaunched – IndiaRxiv

“During the Foundation Day celebrations of the Society for Promotion of Horticulture (SPH), IndiaRxiv (India Archive), preprints repository server for India was relaunched on the SPH’s webserver using Public Knowledge Project’s free & open source software, Open Preprints Systems. Previously, the Centre for Open Science was hosting the repository using Open Science Framework. Preprints are versions of articles that have not yet been submitted to a journal for peer review….”

PKP Publishing Services Welcomes OPS Hosted Client: Engineering Archive | Public Knowledge Project

“PKP Publishing Services (PKP|PS) is happy to welcome our first Open Preprint Systems (OPS) hosted client, Engineering Archive (engrXiv).

Open Engineering Inc launched engrXiv in 2016 with the mission of openly disseminating engineering knowledge and is now migrating from OSF Preprints, the Centre for Open Science’s preprint service, to OPS, an open-source system developed by PKP in partnership with SciELO, for managing and posting preprints online. The move will provide engrXiv with greater operational control and the support of a strong open source community. …”

Developing an updated plugin for Dataverse integration with OPS/OJS on Vimeo

“In this activity we present the current status of development of a plugin to integrate Dataverse with Open Preprint Servers (OPS) and Open Journal Systems (OJS) in their most recent versions (3.3.x series).

The Road to Preprints (Part 1): Introducing Open Preprint Systems | Public Knowledge Project

In 2018, PKP announced a working partnership with SciELO to build the open source software necessary to host preprint servers. The requirements were clear and had been expertly laid out by SciELO: they needed a preprint server that could meet the decentralized, multilingual, and multidisciplinary needs of their network. But not only that, they needed their preprint server to be fully interoperable with – you guessed it – Open Journal Systems (OJS). Armed with specifications and seed funding from SciELO, along with a generous donation from a Stanford University donor, it wasn’t long before SciELO’s preprint server, Open Preprint Systems (OPS), was born. 

OPS 3.2 Beta is set to be released on February 28, 2020 alongside OJS/OMP 3.2 and we couldn’t be more thrilled – for both SciELO and the doors this software opens for the global scholarly communications community.
