Public Knowledge Project (PKP) - seeking volunteer translators (many languages)


Translation - REQUESTS


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.

See original request details here:

https://pkp.sfu.ca/2021/09/08/seeking-volunteers-to-translate-public-knowledge-project-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.

Biomed News - Machine learning tool to identify papers of interest in PubMed - looking for topic experts

Thanks. Jamroom was originally set up to help musicians distribute their music; it still does this, so is still strong on offering ways to distribute sound and video files. As a Jamroom user (developing the Research Cooperative network), I've contributed feedback for improvements in how it handles text, and the JR team have made (and continue to make) improvements.

However, it is not a purpose-built text publishing platform like those developed for open access journals. But.. pdf documents, blogs and so on can all be uploaded, tagged, indexed and so on. JR has a core system module and then many optional add on modules that work with it. If I had a team of developers, I could then modify the css templates to jazz up our network - but I don't. So my policy has been to customize as little as possible, so that updates and improvements made by JR can simply be accepted and used without any further work on my side (I am a full-time researcher with no training in computer coding).

If you can tell me what might be useful for you, then I can consider if it is easy enough for me to implement with the JR modules that I am currently using.

For example, I can give you the ability to make a separate profile for your project, and test that as a vehicle for the project.

RE: Biomed News

Hi Gavin,

Thanks for joining.

Sorry for the deleted URL - that's signup security feature that I generally have on. It's possible that the Research Cooperative network, host and server system (all at Jamroom) could be useful for you, perhaps initially as a test. Please discuss with me if this is of interest. The features that you see in the Research Cooperative employ just a limited part of the capacity of Jamroom, which is highly flexible and extensible but needs technically skilled developers to exploit fully.

Best regards, Peter (Admin., Kyoto)

Asking others to read and check your paper can improve acceptance by publishers


Editing - REQUESTS


May publishers receive papers hat have god content but poor construction and writing.

Many problems can be ironed out before submission by asking colleagues to read a draft and make critical comments. If the help given is major, then the volunteer helper can also be invited to be a coauthor!

Researchers can help each other, by offering help in areas of their own expertise.

If you are a researcher, please consider using this forum to request volunteer help, and if you want, make a specific offer to help others, in the forum for editing offers.

The aim is to find compatible working partners with shared interests and trust. This requires that you make your own efforts to communicate with other members of the network.

Thank you, Peter (Admin, Kyoto)

Researchers can offer mutual help to other researchers


Editing - OFFERS


Editing help does not necessarily have to be expensive. Researchers can help each other, by offering help in areas of their own expertise.

If you are a researcher, please consider using this forum to offer volunteer help, and if you want, make a specific request for help with your own work in the forum for editing requests.

The aim is to find compatible working partners with shared interests and trust. This requires that you make your own efforts to communicate with other members of the network.

Thank you, Peter (Admin, Kyoto)
