Covering a range of goals and tactics, many groups use their PubPub Communities to be of service to their readers, increase research transparency, and assist those in joining them toward a shared goal or cause.
One of PubPub’s first use cases, books continue to be popular communities on the platform. Authors and publishers have used the platform to experiment with design, reader engagement, teaching, and expanding access, along with conducting open community review of texts.
From supporting greater access to their holdings, to sharing more transparently about how they fulfill their missions, to bringing their visitors together with events and programming, some Museums have started implementing PubPub to great effect.
Case studies and reports, used as both teaching tools and reflections of progress, are published on PubPub for greater community engagement and reach.
Spanning disciplines, journals on PubPub (including student publications) represent some of our biggest collaborations around features and customization. They are all distinct in their topic and workflows, but all are open access.
Even before the pandemic and the normalization of remote attendance, groups were using PubPub to publish event proceedings, solicit submissions, and share additional information about a conference to cultivate greater community engagement all while expanding access to these events.
