The Advisory Council of the EarthArXiv preprint service for earth sciences has announced a partnership with the California Digital Library (CDL) that will support EarthArXiv’s mission, future growth, and long-term sustainability. Core to this partnership will be the transition of EarthArXiv’s preprints server – including public display and submission management – from the Center for Open Science to the eScholarship Publishing program at the CDL.
CDL will host EarthArXiv using Janeway, an open source publishing platform developed by the Centre for Technology and Publishing and the Open Library of Humanities at Birkbeck University of London. EarthArXiv’s Advisory Council will maintain ownership and control over the preprint server, while the eScholarship Publishing team will contribute to the development, support, and maintenance of the Janeway platform.
Since its founding, EarthArXiv has partnered with the Center for Open Science to host its content online. Recently, however, financial considerations made it necessary for the Advisory Council to explore alternative hosting partners.
Work will begin immediately to adapt the Janeway platform’s preprints functionality to meet the needs of the EarthArXiv community. EarthArXiv authors and readers should expect minimal disruptions to the service, and improved functionality when the site transitions to its new home in Summer 2020.
