Cornell University Library has just announced the distribution of an open source publication management system. The software was developed to facilitate a cost-effective approach for publishing scholarly research by libraries, colleges and universities.
“This flexible online publishing tool will aid institutions of higher education and research in managing and disseminating the intellectual efforts of scholars and researchers. The DPubS beta version will be available in 2005, with final release scheduled for 2006. An initial meeting to elicit development recommendations from interested libraries and publishers is scheduled for late October at Cornell.”
