The Next Generation Library Publishing project (NGLP) invites community feedback on the draft release of the Values and Principles Framework and Assessment Checklist tools we have produced to assess and incentivize stronger alignment between publishing tools, services, and platforms and the scholarly communities and publics they ultimately serve. Pending public feedback, we plan to refine and issue this tool in 2021 for broad use.
The draft is open for public comment until September 30, 2020.
About the NGLP Project
The Next Generation Library Publishing project (led by Educopia Institute, California Digital Library, and Stratos, in close collaboration with COAR, LYRASIS, and Longleaf Services, and generously funded by Arcadia), seeks to improve the publishing pathways and choices available to authors, editors, and readers through strengthening, integrating, and scaling up scholarly publishing infrastructure to support library publishers. In addition to developing interoperable publishing tools and workflows, our team is exploring how to create community hosting models that align explicitly and demonstratively with academic values.
This Framework and Assessment Checklist and its affiliated documentation have been prepared by Katherine Skinner and Sarah Lippincott and edited by Nancy Adams, Hannah Ballard, Terra Graziani, Jennifer Kemp, Brandon Locke, Catherine Mitchell, Kristen Ratan, Oya Reiger, Kathleen Shearer, John Sherer, Nick Shockey, Eric van Rijn, and Sarah Wipperman.
