The development of a brand-new version of Libero will be governed under a model that puts the community at the heart of the project.

eLife, together with the non-profit Collaborative Knowledge Foundation (Coko), open-access publisher Hindawi Limited and digital consultancy Digirati, has today announced a new formal partnership to develop the latest version of Libero.

Community-driven and open-source, Libero is a platform of services and applications that help content providers do more with everything they publish. The software presents content in a responsive online format that is easy to access and inviting to read on any device, and is straightforward to integrate with other services that enhance the reader’s interaction with published literature.

Libero was originally developed by the non-profit eLife, which aims to help scientists accelerate discovery by operating a platform for research communication that encourages and recognises the most responsible behaviours in science. To facilitate adoption of Libero as a platform by other organisations and expand a high-quality, open infrastructure as an alternative to proprietary systems, eLife, Coko, Hindawi and Digirati have created this partnership.

Driven by you, built by the community, flexible and modern.
