The Public Knowledge Project

October 10, 2012

SFU Library provides free hosting and support to SFU graduate students and researchers in regards to the Public Knowledge Project.

The Public Knowledge Project is an international research and development partnership based at Simon Fraser University, bringing together researchers, journal editors, librarians, software developers, and graduate students dedicated to exploring how new technologies can be used to improve the professional and public value of scholarly and scientific research.

Its research program is investigating the social, economic, and technical issues entailed in the use of online infrastructure and knowledge management strategies to improve both the scholarly quality and public accessibility and coherence of this body of knowledge in a sustainable and globally accessible form.

Its development program has resulted in the production of several free, open source software applications, including the Open Journal Systems (OJS), which assists with every stage of the refereed publishing process, from submissions through to online publication and indexing.
OJS has been translated into several languages and is used by thousands of people around the world.

If you are interested in using OJS, or any other PKP software, for your research project, contact the SFU Library.
