Open Publishing Fest

Open Publishing Fest celebrates communities developing open creative, scholarly, technological, and civic publishing projects. Together, we find new ground to share our ideas.

This is at once a collaborative and distributed event. Sessions are hosted by individuals and organizations around the world as panel discussions, fireside chats, demonstrations, and performances. We connect those points to bring them in conversation with one another and map out what’s next.

We seek to build networks of resilience and care for people working on new ways to develop and share knowledge.

Georgia Open Stacks

The University of Georgia Press is temporarily providing open, read-only access to a selection of our titles in history and other humanities fields. In response to the closures of school, libraries, and other public places due to COVID-19, our hope is provide material that will be of use to students as their classes are moved online or cancelled and to the general public as they self-isolate.

As you read the full texts of these works, you are able to communicate with the author and other readers on our Manifold site or through Twitter, joining existing threads or beginning new conversations. Some author-generated supplemental materials are provided to inform and supplement the teaching, learning, and reading experience. All rights-restricted images and/or text have been redacted.

Open Definition

The Open Definition sets out principles that define “openness” in relation to data and content.

It makes precise the meaning of “open” in the terms “open data” and “open content” and thereby ensures quality and encourages compatibility between different pools of open material.
It can be summed up in the statement that:

It can be summed up in the statement that:

“Open means anyone can freely access, use, modify, and share for any purpose (subject, at most, to requirements that preserve provenance and openness).”

Put most succinctly:

“Open data and content can be freely used, modified, and shared by anyone for any purpose

Open Michigan

Welcome to the new Open Michigan! As a partnership of the University Library and Health Information Technology and Services, we are the home for all things open at the University of Michigan—including expertise and services for open educational resources, open data, and open publications.

Open Michigan encourages scholars and students to maximize the impact of their work through open sharing. As a public institution, the University of Michigan is committed to serving our university community, the residents of the state of Michigan, and the broader world in which we live. That means making sure that publicly-funded research (and its underlying data!) is accessible to citizens, providing a platform for teachers and students to find and re-use high-quality educational materials, and educating scholars about the benefits of sharing their work with the world beyond our campus.

Throughout our site you’ll find resources for doing all of this and more.

SciPost, publication portal

SciPost is a complete scientific publication portal managed by and for scientists.

It is purely online-based, and offers freely, openly, globally and perpetually accessible science.

Being managed by professional scientists, and making use of editor-solicited and contributed reviews, its Journals aim at the highest achievable standards of refereeing.

SciPost Commentaries allow Contributors to seamlessly comment on all existing literature.

Preprint handling and circulation occurs through the well-established arXiv; the rest of the publication process, from peer refereeing through publication all the way to post-publication commenting, is offered by SciPost.

Thus, simply stated: share your preprint on arXiv, publish it in

Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo)

The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to foster global adoption of open geospatial technology by being an inclusive software foundation devoted to an open philosophy and participatory community driven development.

The foundation provides financial, organizational and legal support to the broader open source geospatial community. It also serves as an independent legal entity to which community members can contribute code, funding and other resources, secure in the knowledge that their contributions will be maintained for public benefit. OSGeo also serves as an outreach and advocacy organization for the open source geospatial community, and provides a common forum and shared infrastructure for improving cross-project collaboration.

The foundation’s projects are all freely available and useable under an Open Source Initiative certified open source license.

Periodic Table of the Open Research Ecosystem

This graphic is an adaptation of Kramer and Bosman’s Rainbow of open science practices and Stanley and Vandegrift’s Periodic Table of Digital Research Resources. It is meant to inspire and invoke ongoing discussions about what a community- or academy-owned research infrastructure might begin to look like. The tools, resources, concepts, and categories on this graphic are in no way comprehensive, but rather representative of our particular view. Colleagues are invited to download and adapt based on their own perspective and position in this ecosystem.

Wellcome Open Research

Wellcome Open Research publishes scholarly articles reporting any basic scientific, translational and clinical research that has been funded (or co-funded) by Wellcome. Each publication must have at least one author who has been, or still is, a recipient of a Wellcome grant.

Articles must be original (not duplications). All research, including clinical trials, systematic reviews, software tools, method articles, and many others, is welcome and will be published irrespective of the perceived level of interest or novelty; confirmatory and negative results, as well as null studies are all suitable. See the full list of article types here.

All articles are published using a fully transparent, author-driven model: the authors are solely responsible for the content of their article. Invited peer review takes place openly after publication, and the authors play a crucial role in ensuring that the article is peer-reviewed by independent experts in a timely manner. Articles that pass peer review will be indexed in PubMed and elsewhere.

Wellcome Open Research is an Open Research platform: all articles are published open access; the publishing and peer-review processes are fully transparent; and authors are asked to include detailed descriptions of methods and to provide full and easy access to source data underlying the results to improve reproducibility.
