English abstract

The Public Knowledge Project (PKP), initiated by Dr. John Willinsky at the University of British Columbia, has developed the open source Open Journal Systems, used by about one thousand journals around the world to publish fully or partially open access journals. The number of journals using OJS is expected to increase to about 1,500 sometime in 2008. PKP is currently a partnership of UBC, Simon Fraser University Library and SFU Centre for Studies in Publishing, and Stanford University. PKP is a vibrant open source community, with a number of centres contributing code. Synergies is a partnership of universities across Canada to coordinate assisting Canadian journals to move to electronic publishing. Most Synergies partners are using OJS software.
