This chapter describes how the Public Knowledge Project, a collective of
academics, librarians, and technical genies, has been, since 1998, building
open source software (free) publishing platforms that create an alternative
path to commercial and subscription-based routes to scholarly
communication. It sets out how its various website platforms, including
Open Journal Systems, Open Conference Systems, and, recently, Open
Monograph Press, provide a guided path through the editorial workflow of
submission, review, editing, publishing and indexing. Thousands of faculty
members around the world are now using the software to publish independent
journals on a peer-reviewed and Open Access basis, greatly increasing the
public and global contribution of research and scholarship.
