Collaborative Knowledge Foundation: Systemic Change in Knowledge Production

Scholarly knowledge production has not kept pace with innovation on the web. The Collaborative Knowledge Foundation (CKF) is building open source solutions in scholarly knowledge production that foster collaboration, integrity and speed. Community driven open source technology can transform knowledge production, specifically scholarly or scientific publishing making it more collaborative, open and reproducible.

  2. 2. human knowledge is doubling every 13 months1 1Industry Tap: http://www.industrytap.com/knowledge- doubling-every-12-months-soon-to-be-every-12-hours/3950 Visualization from the Opte Project
  3. 3. But knowledge production today is •  still concentrated in high income nations •  created largely in isolation •  authored in unstructured, proprietary formats •  not created in ways that are accessible •  produced using print-based workflows •  often behind paywalls •  published with a fraction of the original data •  slow and costly to produce
  4. 4. New models are emerging
  5. 5. •  Built OS tools: Booki, Lexicon, Objavi, and BookJS, •  Created the Book Sprints method •  Founded Book Sprints Ltd •  Founded FLOSS Manuals •  Founded Booktype, PubSweet Book Sprints Founder, Adam Hyde
  6. 6. Facilitation Methodology Platform Book Sprints Technology has been the weak leg

  9. 9. We believe: True systemic change in knowledge production requires a scalable, flexible and adaptable open source technology solution
  10. 10. CKF is building PubSweet2
  11. 11. CKF will expand the tool-kit available to those wishing to change knowledge production We will bring collaboration to the creation and production of scholarly knowledge
  12. 12. PubSweet2 is Born Networked Born Accessible Born Archivable Born Open Born Compliant Born Linked
  13. 13. The result will be an environment that enables the Fair, Rapid and Complete communication of scholarship available to everyone
