Tools for Lightweight Scientific Publishing

January 12, 2011

Related to our mission to make research outputs more accessible you may be interested in the knowledgeblog (kblog) project.  This project is augmenting wordpress to provide a simple, easy-to-use, and extensible framework for scientific publishing.  So far, it has been used for material that might previously have been published in a book on Ontologies:

and the Taverna workflow engine:

However, kblogs could be used for any form of scientific publishing including primary research. Kblogs support standard authoring tools (Word, Latex, Open Office). Currently, the k-blog team are adding better support for formal reviewing of articles, references and reference lists. All software is freely available.

URL’s from items published using the kblogs features could be added to institutional systems.
