Recently, Open Knowledge Institutions was published openly by the MIT Press. Uniquely, this title went through a radically collaborative and transparent publication process, from its original drafting through the facilitation of the Book Sprints team, to its open review period as the inaugural title in the MIT Press’s Works in Progress program, to its open publication both on PubPub and on MIT Press Direct.
Our webinar “An Open Process for Open Knowledge,” hosted virtually on September 8, 2021 sought to explore this process with those involved. We discussed the benefits of and considerations around engaging in such an open process and how this connects to the subject matter of the book itself. Below is a recording of the event.
