Exploring Editoria today!

Many presses and library publishers have “explore open, shared scholarly infrastructure options” on their ‘to do’ lists for the coming year. Summer vacations make it difficult to accommodate strategic discussions at any organization at this time of year.

Still, there is something you can do today if you have exploring Editoria on your list. Here are some steps you can take before 5 p.m. today that have the capacity to sustain your publishing program in the long term.

  1. Visit gitlab.coko.foundation to download Editoria, and perform a local install.
    • Have IT staff? They’d probably love for you to ask them to help you with this.
    • No IT staff? Pop in to mattermost.coko.foundation/editoria. Our team would be thrilled to help you out.
  2. Run some .docx files through the workflow!
    • Try last years’ list for a complete set of files you can test with.
