Title: The Open Publishing Guide: Creating a self-publishing website using open source content management tools
Author: Albanese, Patricia; Bernius, Matthew; Conklin, Sean; Crespo, Alvin; Gootnick, Rachael
Abstract: The goal of the RIT Open Publishing Guide project is to create a web-based repository of information about self-publishing, including publishing tutorials. As this was primarily a production-based project as opposed to research, this report will focus on the process taken to develop the final website. It will discuss the steps necessary to produce a website of the scope and scale of the Open Publishing Guide, provide an overview of the production methodology, discuss the process by which content was acquired for the site, explore the web platform used to deliver the content, and, finally, outline the high level production workflow of the site. This report will be of use to those interested in deploying large scale, dynamic, websites and individuals interested in consumer-focused, Internet print-on-demand services.
