Abstract

Scholarly publishing is evolving, and there is a need to understand and design the new (emergent) workflows while also designing technology to capture and support these processes. This article documents an ongoing collaboration to develop technology to meet emergent workflows in scholarly publishing, namely Publish-Review-Curate (PRC). We explore this topic with different eLife PRC community stakeholders using Kotahi, a flexible open-source scholarly publishing platform that can support variant workflows (built by Coko).

 

 

OA Publishing Platform | Scholarly Community | ReachOA

“Amnet, through its collaboration with Coko, has developed an OA publishing platform ReachOA, which is aimed at addressing present scholarly publishing challenges and at helping the scholarly community do more with less. Our focus is to offer the best open access tools for the scholarly publishers the world over and to help members explore the potential of open access journals and take advantage of them.

ReachOA powered by Kotahi, is a full-featured modern publishing platform designed to digitize content publishing including science journals, micropublications, preprints and more. Its range of rich features and optimized workflow simplify the end-to-end process, making it easy for article publishers to create, review, revise, and publish their works….”
