California Digital Library to Host Earth Sciences Preprint Service
The California Digital Library (CDL; WDS Regular Member) has forged a partnership with the Advisory Council of the EarthArXiv preprint service for earth sciences, and 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.
