Announcing: Reflections and Directions After PKP’s First Two Decades
The Public Knowledge Project (PKP) is pleased to share our reflections on a community consultation process that saw us receive feedback from a wide range of stakeholders, including scholarly communications experts and past, present, and potential users of PKP software and services. The community consultation was led by the consulting firm BlueSky to BluePrint, with its principal, Nancy Maron, with the support of the Laura and John Arnold Foundation.
The report presents both the opportunities and challenges that PKP faces as an academic-led project trying to bring open source and community-based solutions for scholarly communications and open access. It also outlines the actions that PKP intends to take as it continues to operate in three main areas:
- Open Source Software;
- Research, education and advocacy; and
- PKP Publishing Services.
As the report explains, PKP is committed to bringing its activities in these areas together in ways that reinforce each other and are philosophically coherent and consistent with the principles that underlie the open access community.
