The newest Public Knowledge Project (PKP) software module, the Open Monograph Press (OMP) 1.0 (Beta), was released on September 17th, 2012. As part of OMP’s release strategy, PKP is working closely with several early adopters who are using OMP in a production environment and who will provide feedback on their experiences with the software. The Early Adopter Initiative is a very important part of ensuring the successful release and adoption of the OMP software.
