The Public Knowledge Project (PKP) is a multi-university initiative to develop (free) open source software and improve the quality and reach of scholarly publishing.

In addition to developing open source software and publishing services, PKP maintains extensive documentation for its users... including user guides for:

  • Open Journal Systems (OJS)
  • Open Monograph Press (OMP)
  • Open Preprint Systems (OPS)

...as well as guides for branding journals; starting student journals; improving accessibility, discoverability, and indexing; and much more.

PKP’s software has already been translated into 45+ different languages. PKP is seeking volunteer translators for the ongoing work of translating the software documentation.

Comment by Research Cooperative: Translators can volunteer in their own interest, as these open source systems for publishing are helping to create opportunities for translators to get paid work.
