We invite feedback and engagement via the open access Commonplace Publication (hosted on the PubPub platform). You can access the Framework and Assessment Checklist freely; you will need to set up an account with Commonplace and PubPub in order to make comments directly in the documents. You are also welcome to contact its lead author, Katherine Skinner, by email to share comments or ideas. The draft is open for public comment until September 30, 2020.
While this Values and Principles Framework and Checklist are focused primarily on the area of Scholarly Communications, all of these elements have been deeply informed by our experiences in digital curation and preservation.
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.
