2017 SSP 39th Annual Meeting
Seminar 3: Open Source Tools for Scholarly Publishing…
Publishers are in the midst of a spate of new open source tools that can help us with authoring, manuscript submission, peer review, content production, web hosting, and beyond. Much of the existing platform software in scholarly publishing is out of date yet still very costly. New software can enable a massive streamlining of editorial and production work at a fraction of the cost. But what are the true benefits of adopting open source software, and what are the pitfalls? In this seminar, we’ll learn about the open source software currently available and software being released in the near future. We’ll talk about how these tools can be accessed and put to use by scholarly publishers, both large and small, and how to mitigate the risks of adopting new tools. This seminar is appropriate for both a technical and a non-technical audience.
