    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;This white paper has been elaborated by the Tools (R&amp;amp;D) Working Group, one of the 7 Working Groups&lt;br&gt;
launched by the OPERAS research infrastructure. The Working Group goal was to set up a list of tools&lt;br&gt;
and development which need to be done, to improve their usability for the OPERAS partners.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The approach in OPERAS emphasizes the importance of building the open science scholarly&lt;br&gt;
communication infrastructure in Social Sciences and Humanities on community driven tools. In&lt;br&gt;
this perspective, the development of Open Source tools and the setup of a toolbox appear to be&lt;br&gt;
appropriate answers to the existing needs and evolutions in scholarly publishing.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Following a first discussion in the Working Group, participants discussed the partners&amp;rsquo; practices and&lt;br&gt;
needs to help focus the Working Group objectives on three functions:&lt;br&gt;
&amp;ndash;&amp;ndash; Peer review: interest in emerging practices such as open peer review, peer review tracking&lt;br&gt;
&amp;ndash;&amp;ndash; Authoring: interest in simple and all-in-one services, especially online and collaborative authoring&lt;br&gt;
&amp;ndash;&amp;ndash; Publishing: in particular, simple tools needed by small academic journals&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The main results of the Working Group are:&lt;br&gt;
&amp;ndash;&amp;ndash; Notes on observed trends&lt;br&gt;
&amp;ndash;&amp;ndash; A common approach and criteria for choosing tools&lt;br&gt;
&amp;ndash;&amp;ndash; A list of relevant tools, detailing features and functionalities&lt;br&gt;
&amp;ndash;&amp;ndash; An analysis of the current needs of the partners&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;For Peer Review, the reviewing workflow is implemented in most Open Source software like Open&lt;br&gt;
Journal System (OJS) but developments are still needed to match the commercial software services.&lt;br&gt;
Similarly, the review tracking data available via services such as Publons is currently not open. The&lt;br&gt;
emerging trend for Open Peer Review represents an innovative area, both in terms of usage and tools.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;For Authoring, we see a bloom of new online and collaborative tools. Promising Open Source software&lt;br&gt;
for editing structured scholarly content are being developed and are near to production, alongside&lt;br&gt;
commercial tools such as Authorea or Overleaf. One of the main challenges, in this case, is to obtain a&lt;br&gt;
continuous production environment through interoperability.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;For Publishing, several Open Source software solutions are already used in production, but, as the&lt;br&gt;
level of service expected from a publication service is rising and includes a growing number of thirdparty&lt;br&gt;
services, the community is considering ways of working together to combine their effort to be&lt;br&gt;
comparable with the state of the art of the commercial solutions.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The Operas partners are willing to go beyond this working group and consider engaging in follow-up&lt;br&gt;
projects, notably to help create a resource centre dedicated to providing the community with current&lt;br&gt;
information and support on scholarly communication software and tools, and to contribute to the&lt;br&gt;
effort in developing Open Source tools.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
