California Digital Library joins PKP as major development partner in open access scholarly publishing

As the scholarly publishing landscape heats up with more talk of boycotts and Open Access mandates, research libraries increasingly find themselves at a crossroads between publishers and faculty - and eagerly working to provide new solutions to entrenched problems. The California Digital Library's latest foray into this space, on behalf of the University of California system, focuses on supporting open source publishing infrastructure through a major development partnership with the Public Knowledge Project. As a result of this agreement, the CDL will assist with PKP's ongoing development and support of its open source software suite - Open Journal Systems, Open Conference Systems, and Open Harvester System, with Open Monograph Press due for release in the coming year
