ABOUT THE RESOURCE
Open Monograph Press is an open source software platform for managing the editorial workflow required to process monographs, edited volumes and scholarly editions through internal and external review, editing, cataloguing, production, and publication. OMP was developed by the Public Knowledge Project (also responsible for Open Journal Systems and Open Harvester Systems).
OMP will operate, additionally, as a press website with catalog, distribution, and sales capacities. OMP is designed to assist university presses, learned societies, and scholar-publishers interested in publishing scholarly books in print-on-demand and multiple electronic formats, whether on an open access or purchase basis. In September 2012 The Public Knowledge Project (PKP) announced the 1.0 (Beta) release of Open Monograph Press (OMP).
EIFL-FOSS and EIFL-OA co-organised a webinar on Open Monograph Press to coincide with Open Access Week 2012. The guest speaker was Juan Pablo Alperin, researcher and system developer, Simon Fraser University Library and PKP.
