(4 October 2017) London-based, open access publisher Hindawi Limited announced today that it has signed a partnership agreement with the Collaborative Knowledge Foundation (Coko) to develop open source publishing tools.
Hindawi joins the Coko community’s work on the PubSweet framework, an open source platform for scholarly journals. Hindawi becomes the latest major partner in the PubSweet initiative, following earlier announcements from the University of California Press and eLife.
The PubSweet platform’s modular architecture will provide the publishing community with a comprehensive, configurable solution for managing content across all stages of the publication process. Partners are free to select from a library of open components contributed by members of the community or to develop new components of their own. In this way, each publisher, society, or institution on the platform can create a custom solution without needing to rebuild core tools.
