Organized by the CRAFT-OA project, the upcoming PKP Sprint will take place on October 8-9, 2024, in Turin, Italy. 

Public Knowledge Project (PKP) is a community-driven, open-source project that develops free scholarly publishing software, including Open Journal Systems (OJS), Open Monograph Press (OMP), and Open Preprint Systems (OPS). These tools receive ongoing support from global organizations and institutions committed to enhancing publishing access, quality, and diversity.

PKP fosters consistent engagement and collaboration with its community. During PKP sprints, community members have a direct impact on the development of PKP software. These interactive events provide a platform for brainstorming critical tasks, setting priorities, and collaborating on improvements to the PKP software. Participants usually collaborate on small-size projects that have teamwork potential and include a mix of both technical and non-technical tasks. Past events have focused on building plugins, documentation, conducting usability tests, and exploring new features. 

The PKP sprint is open to:

·         Programmers

·         Journal managers

·         Librarians

·         User interface experts

·         and other individuals involved in publishing


If you use OJS, OMP, or OPS for your publishing needs, and have ideas to improve these systems, we invite you to join our PKP sprint! 

There is a limited number of 50 participants!

If you have any questions, contact commpkp@sfu.ca.
