The MIT Press Releases Report on Open Source Software

The MIT Press published “Mind the Gap: A Landscape Analysis of Open Source Publishing Tools and Platforms,” which “catalogs and analyzes all available open-source software for publishing and warns that open publishing must grapple with the dual challenges of siloed development and organization of the community-owned ecosystem. … Funded by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the report ‘shed[s] light on the development and deployment of open-source publishing technologies in order to aid institutions’ and individuals’ decision-making and project planning.’ It will be an unparalleled resource for the scholarly publishing community and complements the recently released Mapping the Scholarly Communication Landscape census.”
