Throughout the summer, we’ve been conducting interviews with various projects that are part of the research data spring, to find out more about their work, their backgrounds, and how they’ve found the process.
In this series of interviews, we take the time to dig a little deeper into the thinking behind these projects, and get to know a little more about the work, and the people, behind them.
Ernesto Priego, from City University London and Andy Byers, from Ubiquity Press, talk about their work to create a series of plug-ins for a open source publishing software called Open Journal Systems. These plug-ins will allow authors to publish data and articles directly from a journal management system to institutional repositories. This will reduce costs and save time for researchers.
