The Editoria Community is very pleased to welcome the American Theological Library Association (ATLA) as the most recent organization to join, supporting Coko’s web-first, browser based books production tool. The organizations have agreed upon a partnership which allows Editoria to be enriched by testing, use, and feedback contributed by ATLA while testing the tool within their open monograph workflow.
“We are very excited to welcome ATLA to the Coko family!,” said Kristen Ratan, Co-founder and Executive Director of Coko. “They join other forward thinkers in the Editoria Community and their feedback will help optimize Editoria for library publishers.”
“While viewing a demonstration of Editoria at the Library Publishing Forum earlier this year, I immediately saw a solution to some issues within our editorial workflow for our open access monograph publishing program. Although we currently internally host other open source tools to produce our open access content, we are not currently able to take on hosting another external product,” said Christine Fruin, Member Programs and Scholarly Communications Manager at ATLA. “However, given the opportunity to use and test a beta, hosted version of Editoria, as well as receive training and support while we offer feedback on our experiences and ideas to Coko, we decided that this was an excellent opportunity to not only address our internal needs but also to contribute to the larger mission of supporting open scholarly infrastructure.”
Both ATLA and Editoria are on the program at the NFAIS Open Access meeting October 1 – 2 in Alexandria, Virginia.
