The HPC will support open source and open access infrastructures for a variety of sectors engaged with ‘hybrid publishing’ (combining web, print, multi-platform distribution and social media). Foremost among these are the worlds of academic and independent publishing and the HPC will develop technical, financial and workflow models for both, as well as work towards the launch of its own university press. The consortium has made a general commitment to open access publishing as a means to remove the artificial barriers that readers and authors encounter in their engagement with critical and scholarly work.

The lab’s dedication to ‘open source infrastructure’ groups together the many technical and social processes that can benefit academic/independent publishers, granting them the sustained attention and resourcing they demand. These include multi-platform delivery, collaborative writing, the ability to circumvent sales monopolies, open IPR and distribution into ‘open education’ environments.

The consortium will be a meeting point for the many stakeholders in open access academic and independent publishing – the authors, the readers, the publishers and the technologists. The HPC looks to be a connection point for these communities and will using rapid prototyping and agile development models to support, improve and network existing open source projects. The ultimate objective is to provide easy and inexpensive tool sets to allow publishers to make the switch to open IPR and multi-platform publishing.

Single source – this is a key architectural principle to digital multi-platform publishing, where a single master document exists separate from platform dependent design. With the master document being stored with universal metadata and a granular schema making it available on any new platform or distribution channel, in part or as a whole.

Partnerships – working with partners in the publishing and technology sectors HPC will support spin-offs and start-ups to service our user community. From development partners such as LShift, Pandora to publishing networks such as Mute and Eurozine.

Projects – the HPC has two initial projects as well as other ongoing strands of research.

Indy portal – a multi-platform system and open IPR business model for independent publishers aimed at bypassing online digital book distribution monopolies.

A multi-platform plugin for Open Journals System (OJS) – the project would be to add multi-platform publication conversion for the main workflow OA publishing tools OJS and its sister software package Open Monograph Systems (OMS).
