On the 12th of October I will be moving on from my post as Technical Architect at Ubiquity Press. I’ve had a great time working on cutting edge publishing technology and working alongside the teams at UP and our partner presses to provide a great experience
During my tenure with Ubiquity we’ve developed a fair few Open Source projects (Rua, OJSSQLA, Toru) that can be found in the Ubiquity Press Github account and brought 12 new presses/partners on boar including:
Including our partners we are now hosting 170 full journals as well as providing hosting services to 6 more including:
- Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication
- Paediatric Neurology Briefs
- Banglajol, Camjol, Mongoliajol and Nepjol with INASP
We’ve also developed a Conference Proceedings System currently in use by Sci Data Con/Codata.
I’ve also had the chance to work with some great developers during my time, to whom much of the success of the UP platform belongs. UP are in the process of hiring a replacement who I’m sure will continue this work.
In the mean time I will be working on some FOSS projects in a freelance capacity before looking for a new post.
