    "description": "<p>This white paper has been elaborated by the Tools (R&amp;D) Working Group, one of the 7 Working Groups<br>\nlaunched by the OPERAS research infrastructure. The Working Group goal was to set up a list of tools<br>\nand development which need to be done, to improve their usability for the OPERAS partners.</p>\n\n<p>The approach in OPERAS emphasizes the importance of building the open science scholarly<br>\ncommunication infrastructure in Social Sciences and Humanities on community driven tools. In<br>\nthis perspective, the development of Open Source tools and the setup of a toolbox appear to be<br>\nappropriate answers to the existing needs and evolutions in scholarly publishing.</p>\n\n<p>Following a first discussion in the Working Group, participants discussed the partners&rsquo; practices and<br>\nneeds to help focus the Working Group objectives on three functions:<br>\n&ndash;&ndash; Peer review: interest in emerging practices such as open peer review, peer review tracking<br>\n&ndash;&ndash; Authoring: interest in simple and all-in-one services, especially online and collaborative authoring<br>\n&ndash;&ndash; Publishing: in particular, simple tools needed by small academic journals</p>\n\n<p>The main results of the Working Group are:<br>\n&ndash;&ndash; Notes on observed trends<br>\n&ndash;&ndash; A common approach and criteria for choosing tools<br>\n&ndash;&ndash; A list of relevant tools, detailing features and functionalities<br>\n&ndash;&ndash; An analysis of the current needs of the partners</p>\n\n<p>For Peer Review, the reviewing workflow is implemented in most Open Source software like Open<br>\nJournal System (OJS) but developments are still needed to match the commercial software services.<br>\nSimilarly, the review tracking data available via services such as Publons is currently not open. The<br>\nemerging trend for Open Peer Review represents an innovative area, both in terms of usage and tools.</p>\n\n<p>For Authoring, we see a bloom of new online and collaborative tools. Promising Open Source software<br>\nfor editing structured scholarly content are being developed and are near to production, alongside<br>\ncommercial tools such as Authorea or Overleaf. One of the main challenges, in this case, is to obtain a<br>\ncontinuous production environment through interoperability.</p>\n\n<p>For Publishing, several Open Source software solutions are already used in production, but, as the<br>\nlevel of service expected from a publication service is rising and includes a growing number of thirdparty<br>\nservices, the community is considering ways of working together to combine their effort to be<br>\ncomparable with the state of the art of the commercial solutions.</p>\n\n<p>The Operas partners are willing to go beyond this working group and consider engaging in follow-up<br>\nprojects, notably to help create a resource centre dedicated to providing the community with current<br>\ninformation and support on scholarly communication software and tools, and to contribute to the<br>\neffort in developing Open Source tools.</p>",
