This workshop will demonstrate the workings of a recently
arrived-at-Stanford open source alternative to current economic models for
scholarly communication, with the modest aim of moving more of research and
scholarship into the public sphere on a global scale. Participants will be
invited to kick the tires and look under the hood of the open source journal
and conference management software, as well as to consider how we can do
more to take Stanford public, in principle and practice.
