We are dedicated to the authors and editors who publish with us, and the broader research community whom we serve. In addition to the Ubiquity Partner Advisory Board, we also operate a General Advisory Board to help us stay abreast of developments in academic research and publishing. Our North America Library Advisory Board provides perspective from the library community and is in the process of expanding internationally. And we will soon be establishing special interest groups to gather input from members of the broader community in more specific areas.
We also provide the Ubiquity Community portal as a space for journal editor, press manager and repository manager communities, where members can ask questions and share experience and resources.

We will soon be announcing the formation of Special Interest Groups. These will provide members of the broader community with an opportunity to provide formative input to our open source platform, in areas such as:
We believe in the power of open source communities to create the highest quality code and to have the broadest possible impact. We work with the following key organisations to build better solutions than we could alone. Our open source collaborations also ensure that Ubiquity Press Partners will not be locked in to proprietary software or publication outputs.
The Public Knowledge Project (PKP) and Open Journal Systems (OJS)
OJS, developed by PKP, is the default journal management system behind our journals platform. We are dedicated to running OJS for the long-term, and we will continue to help improve the platform based on the experience of our editors.
Samvera and Hyku
Hyku is the new multi-tenancy repository system built on top of Samvera. We are fully committed to building a next-generation repository along with the rest of the Hyku community.
OPERAS is a consortium of organisations dedicated to furthering open access and open science in the humanities and social sciences (HSS). We currently operate the OPERAS Metrics platform, which provides open publishers with consistent book-level metrics. We are also actively contributing to its code with other members.
