Open Source Peer Review System Moves Forward
This month, a second Hindawi journal will move onto the open source collaboratively developed Phenom Review peer review platform. Phenom Review is part of Hindawi’s collaboration with Coko utilizing the open source PubSweet framework. Currently handling peer review and workflow for 2 journals, the goal is migration to the system of a further 230 journals by early in 2020.

Opportunities are now available to work with CDL’s University of California Curation Center (UC3) to develop and manage the tools and infrastructure supporting their digital curation and preservation services.

Fellowships

Applications are now open for the 2020 Better Scientific Software Fellowship Program.
