PKP Publishing Services  is happy to welcome our first Open Preprint Systems (OPS) hosted client, Engineering Archive (engrXiv).

Open Engineering Inc launched engrXiv in 2016 with the mission of openly disseminating engineering knowledge and is now migrating from OSF Preprints, the Centre for Open Science’s preprint service, to OPS, an open-source system developed by PKP in partnership with SciELO, for managing and posting preprints online. The move will provide engrXiv with greater operational control and the support of the open-source community. 

OPS provides an accessible alternative for preprint management and online public access to preprint collections. OPS is highly customizable, provides a rapid workflow,  integrates with publishing services like Crossref and ORCID, and is available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese, with more languages to come. 

You can learn more about its features in PKP’s Learning OPS user guide and hosting requirements on PKP’s website. The PKP Forum also includes a section dedicated to OPS  for free additional support. 

PKP Publishing Services offers installation, hosting, ongoing support, for OPS servers included in plans ranging from $2,500 to $3,900 per year. With options to add training, CrossRef membership, DOI management, and custom development. All revenue is used to fund the development of PKP’s free and open-source software and services, which benefit the entire global scholarly community. Contact us for more information.
