In late 2006 the Library Digital Programs Group of The Sheridan Libraries at Johns Hopkins University was commissioned by the Open Society Institute (OSI) to perform a survey and evaluation of open-source electronic publishing systems. This evaluation fits nicely with Hopkins’ interests in repository analysis and evaluation, long-term/large-scale data curation, and linkages between primary publications and related datasets, as well as with the interests of the Johns Hopkins University Press. In this presentation, a report on the methodology and results of this study will be provided, including an evaluation of DPubS, GNU Eprints, Hyperjournal, and Open Journal Systems, as well as commentary on Connexions/Rhaptos, DiVA, and Topaz.
The study itself will be published as a white paper by the Open Society Institute.
