Community Publishing

The knowledge created by individuals is often grounded in a community that informs and supports their work -- we need tools that better reflect this community-centric process. In order to do that, we learn from models of publishing in academia, law, journalism, and provide infrastructure for more efficient collaboration. These new publishing models are rapidly being adopted by institutions and groups that encapsulate a diverse set of perspectives, and through the work of this program, we are finding that the desire for access to knowledge is stronger than the commercial and artificial constraints imposed to prevent knowledge from being shared widely. To start, we ask, how can we improve on current publishing systems and increase access to knowledge in the future? We build the community-driven publishing infrastructure and contribute to a culture that celebrates those efforts.
