Coko & eLife partner on first PubSweet fueled journals submission & peer-review platform

September 22, 2017

Earlier this week, eLife announced a partnership with Coko to build an open source solution for submission, peer review and processing of manuscripts. The limitations of the currently available systems are substantial. We both believe there’s a better way — an open source solution that draws on our collective knowledge and experience as publishers and platform developers.  

Take Editoria for a spin

September 14, 2017
You’re already free to download Editoria, the book production platform we’re building with the University of California Press and take it for a spin.

If you’re more in test-drive mode, Coko’s Alex Theg made this speedy slide deck that shows off some of Editoria’s features.  In just a few minutes, you’ll see what it’s like to go from login to Team Manager to bulk uploading of MS Word docs and see the editor in action,

Making decisions in a small team and keeping it fun

September 11, 2017
At Coko we’re a small but very productive team. On the technical side, there are a lot of decisions to make that can affect everyone. These range from the small, such as what styles to apply to a radio button, to the large, more along the lines of “which software do we use to manage components?”

A look at the future of journals with xpub

September 8, 2017
The Coko team has been hard at work on the xpub-Collabra journal platform. Below you can take a first look at a mockup of one of the components:


It’s built on top of PubSweet, the community-driven platform-building toolkit, and the result above is based on the design brief you can check out here.

Editoria 1.1: Meet the Automagic Book Builder

August 8, 2017
Scholarly ebook production today typically involves a lot of manual work: there are times when a production editor is cobbling together files, images and other sources in a way that’s inefficiently artisanal.

Enter the “Automagic Book Builder,” one of the standout features in Editoria 1.1. The feature was designed by Kate Warne and Cindy Fulton,

A sneak peak at what’s next for PubSweet

July 21, 2017
Over the course of two days in San Francisco, about 20 of us put our heads together  to talk about upcoming features in PubSweet 2.0, Coko’s platform-building toolkit. (If you want to get up to speed on the 1.0 release, more on that here.)



The first day covered PubSweet 1.0.

Travel the long and winding road to PubSweet

July 18, 2017
Ever wonder how open-source projects go from an idea on the back of a napkin to something you can use and contribute to?

As the Coko Foundation puts the finishing touches on PubSweet 1.0 — and we’d love your comments on future developments, too — co-founder Adam Hyde takes you on journey back to 2007.

Ink 1.0 is here!

July 17, 2017
The Collaborative Knowledge Foundation is pleased to announce the release of INK 1.0.

It’s an exciting milestone for us: After almost a year of development, INK has grown from a scribble on a bit of paper to a fully fledged, production-ready framework ready to automate some of the tricky and time-consuming aspects of document and content processing in publishing.

Baby steps to user-centric open source development

July 10, 2017


Coko co-founder Adam Hyde believes that open source projects should be developed with the user, not for the user. That’s pretty much the exact opposite of how most of these projects grow today, with developers scratching their own itch. The user with their needs, interests, preferences, can be an afterthought.

Hyde’s been thinking about how to make this work for awhile now — check out his book “The Cabbage Tree Method” — and recently outlined seven ways to get users more involved in the process.
