Documentation Interest Group

The Documentation Interest Group (DIG) coordinates, advises on, creates, and maintains PKP’s software documentation. You can find PKP documentation in the Documentation Hub. To contribute to documentation, read our Contributor Guidelines, contact us, or attend a virtual documentation sprint.

The DIG hosts bi-weekly virtual documentation sprints on Fridays from 12-1:30 pm EST. We collaborate on a different document each time and anyone can participate. 

Get in touch for more information or to join a sprint.
