Call for New Members: Documentation Interest Group (DIG)
April 4, 2022
PKP is seeking new volunteer members to join the Documentation Interest Group, a community-led PKP working group that manages, creates, and improves documentation about PKP software and publishing best practices. This is a great opportunity for a community member to get more involved with PKP, network with PKP partners and other organizations, and advance documentation and support resources.
The DIG is one of PKP’s most active and productive groups. Since its inception in 2017, it has created or updated the majority of the documentation in PKP’s Documentation Hub.
DIG members participate in bi-weekly virtual sprints where they collaborate with other members of the group to refine and create documentation about PKP software as well as general documentation to assist publishers, journal editorial staff, students, and authors. The DIG also meets monthly to strategize about documentation. DIG members also participate in in-person PKP sprints when possible, when they occur.
See the DIG’s Terms of Reference for more information about the Group.
If you want to join us, please fill out our short registration form so we can better understand your areas of expertise.
If you want to contribute to documentation but cannot commit to full membership and sprint/meeting attendance, we encourage you to view our Guidelines for Contributing to Documentation! Our documentation is open to our community for editing and suggestions. Users can submit proposed changes through GitHub or contact us via our Documentation Feedback form to help us improve
Finally, we are always looking for those with linguistic skills to translate our existing documentation into other languages for our regional communities. If you want to translate documentation, follow the documentation translation guide to sign up and translate.
