Supporting open source requires trust: A look inside the Substance Consortium

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There are increasing calls for open source infrastructure to support scholarly communications, but it hard for organizations to invest into open source projects without having some guarantees that the outcome will meet all their needs. This makes supporting open source complicated, and leads to organizations building their our own tools and, in the best of cases, sharing their software publicly. But, with a little trust and good will, the Substance Consortium is demonstrating another way forward. This presentation will describe how the Public Knowledge Project, Erudit, SciELO, and eLife have been working together, without any formal agreement, to support Substance in building the Texture editor. Representatives from each organization will discuss how they are working within their diverse institutional constraints to coordinate with the others and deliver an editor that will soon be found in thousands of journals and editorial workflows.
