eLife and Coko Continue to Work on Open Source Publishing Solutions
eLife extended its partnership with Coko, stating the following:
eLife is pleased to announce … its ongoing support for Coko to develop open-source software solutions for publishing, including Kotahi—a new journal platform that can also help facilitate the publication and review of preprints. … The organisations first partnered in 2017 to develop a system for the submission and peer review of manuscripts, which was built on the Coko PubSweet framework. …
For eLife, Kotahi is a solution for streamlining the publication of reviews to preprints posted to bioRxiv and medRxiv, as part of the journal’s review process. It also provides peer-review management capabilities for other organisations, such as the Novel Coronavirus Research Compendium (NCRC), that are interested in peer-reviewing preprints and having their evaluations appear on Sciety.
