NGLP Community Forum: Library PublishingBy Sarah Lippincott
At this forum, you’ll get a look at the latest version of our groundbreaking publishing platform and hear from our pilot partners who’ve put it to the test over the last several months. We’ll be joined by Yan Han (University of Arizona Libraries), Erin Jerome (UMass-Amherst), John Morgenstern (Clemson University Libraries and Press), and Lisa Schiff (California Digital Library), who will talk about their experiences with the platform and what it means for the future of their publishing programs.
About Next Generation Library Publishing project
The Next Generation Library Publishing project is led by Educopia Institute, California Digital Library (CDL), and Strategies for Open Science (Stratos), in close partnership with Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR) and Longleaf Services.
The project is generously funded by Arcadia, a charitable fund of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin. Its purpose is to improve publishing pathways and services for authors, editors, and readers through strengthening, integrating, and scaling up scholarly publishing infrastructure to support library publishers. In addition to developing interoperable publishing tools and workflows, our team is exploring how to create community hosting models that align explicitly and demonstratively with academic values.
