In mid-2017, Hindawi, eLife, and the University of California Press joined the Collaborative Knowledge Foundation (Coko), to develop shared, open-source peer review and journal software together. Over the last year, we have seen organizations of all shapes and sizes join the community, including a commercial publisher, a non-profit, a university press and a scholarly society.

We propose to bring together speakers from the Coko community to discuss how we've managed to engage with each other across company and geographic boundaries. Topics will include collaborative development, collaborative design, and community building, with examples of what's worked and what hasn't. We'll share what we've learned from the open source community outside publishing and what practices we've found work specifically for the scholarly communications domain.
