Open-source publishing system from Cornell. The Cornell University Library has a grant from the Mellon Foundation to develop an open-source publishing platform for online scholarship. The platform is called DPubS (for Digital Publishing System), which Cornell originally developed for Project Euclid. From today's press release: “DPubS will support peer review, have extensive administrative functionality, and will provide interoperability with other open source repository systems such as Fedora and DSpace….The DPubS beta version will be available in 2005, with final release scheduled for 2006. An initial meeting to elicit development recommendations from interested libraries and publishers is scheduled for late October at Cornell.” [Open Access News]
