Join the PKP Documentation Interest Group

July 27th, 2016 by  | 9 Comments

Did you know that in addition to making free, open source software for scholarly publishing, PKP also writes detailed documentation, both on using our software, but also for improving your publishing practices. Documents like Learning OJS help you with the tools, and Getting Found, Staying Found help you expand your publishing expertise.

In our continuing efforts to create new documentation, and update and improve our existing documentation, we have established a new PKP Documentation Interest Group (PKP-DIG) — and we invite you to join us!

You can find the PKP Documentation Interest Group page on github, which includes the current members and terms of reference.

The PKP-DIG wiki includes more information, such as current projects and group resources.

We will be working together to move all of the existing PKP documentation into gitbooks, and keep them current. This is your chance to learn all about git (or not, if you’d rather just write)!

New documentation, such as the second edition of Getting Found, Staying Found, will be created as a Google Doc, but when ready, imported as a new gitbook.

2016-04-25 11.06.54If you are interested in joining the group and hanging out with some really great people, please let me know ( and I will add you to our mailing list. We plan to meet once or twice a month (virtually) to coordinate our efforts, as well as at PKP sprints and conferences, and will do our best to work around everyone’s schedules, availability, and time zones.

We’re looking forward to working with you!
Kevin & Mike
