Openjournals joins PKP Sprint 2022
The openjournals team participated in the PKP Sprint 2022 in Helsinki on 15 and 16 June. PKP (Public Knowledge Project) is the organisation that develops the open source software for the Open Journals Systems (OJS). This software is used by the openjournals platforms and by more than 25,000 scientific journals worldwide.
During a sprint, developers and users come together to discuss a number of problems or wishes and devise and develop a solution on the spot. In addition, this sprint was an opportunity to exchange experiences with representatives of other national platforms or journal editors. More and more universities and other scientific organisations are taking the publication process into their own hands in order to contribute to open science.
