PublishOA.ie, co-led by the Royal Irish Academy and Trinity College Dublin, is pleased to share a webinar which gives an introduction to different publishing platforms for books.
The webinar included demos from platform providers Coko Foundation (Ketida), Manifold, and The Public Knowledge Project’s Open Monograph Press (PKP/OMP), and is part of PublishOA.ie’s mission of evaluating the feasibility of establishing a national publishing platform in Ireland.
If you are involved in book publishing or curious about open source systems, this webinar will give you the opportunity to see different platforms in action and put questions directly to the teams involved. Each platform is presented, followed by a Q&A session.
– Ketida is produced by the Coko Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation whose aim is to use to use Open Source to transform how knowledge is created, improved, and shared.
– Manifold is a collaboration between the CUNY Graduate Center, the University of Minnesota Press, and Cast Iron Coding, and each group brings a unique perspective to the project: scholarship, publishing, and technology. It is 100 percent open source and free.
– PKP/OMP produces free, open source software to disseminate research and manage the entire scholarly publishing workflow from submission to indexing.
