Documentation Interest Group

The Documentation Interest Group (DIG) coordinates and advises on 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 12-2 pm EST. We collaborate on a different document each time and anyone can participate. Get in touch for more information!

Upcoming sprint topics:

  • Friday, February 8 – Create chapter on basic site design and customization for Theming Guide
  • Friday, February 22 – Update Learning OJS 3 with new features in OJS 3.1.2
