Aperture is Proud to Announce Upcoming Transition to Kotahi, an Open Source Modern Scholarly Publishing Platform 

Aperture is transitioning to a new open-source publishing platform, Kotahi, and you can take part in demos of this platform during the OHBM 2021 meeting!

 Kotahi (a Coko Community product) is an open source modern scholarly publishing platform which has received support from many partners including McGill Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives NeuroHub project and eLife. Kotahi is now in production for eLife for publishing reviews, and is supported by a wide group of interesting partners like Eko-Konnect, Amnet Systems, and Cloud68. We hope that Kotahi will become a hub where hybrid research objects can easily be submitted from “web labs.”

Kotahi solves many of our current publishing platform limitations and we are really excited about its features. Like Aperture, a community driven open access publishing platform, Kotahi is also community driven.

To learn more about this new partnership visit the Aperture Booth in the Exhibitor Hall during the OHBM 2021 Annual Meeting Exhibitor Hours. Our Journal Manager, Kay Vanda, will be staffing the booth and running demos during select scheduled hours. We hope to see you virtually!

Stay tuned for more updates on this transition.

Contact aperture@humanbrainmapping.org for any questions.

We are excited to announce that Aperture will be hosting TWO roundtables in collaboration with Tonya White, Peter Bandettini, JB Poline and the Open Science SIG at OHBM 2021. Come join us for these interactive discussions.

The roundtables are scheduled for June 22nd at 9pm New York/3am(+1)Paris/9am(+1)Beijing and June 24th at 1pm New York/7pm Paris/1am(+1) Beijing. More Details can be found on the Aperture Website.

Aperture Editorial Team Updates 

Aperture went public in October, 2020 in our beta-phase. Since then we grew our Editorial Team, invited collaborators to submit to our new platform, and fine-tuned our submission, review and publishing processes.

We now have 37 Handling Editors, each with critical specialized expertise for handling Aperture Research Objects, assisting with author guidelines, helping grow our Expert Reviewer Board and championing Aperture! Several new Handling Editors have joined those who were appointed since we launched!

We thank our Editorial Team! We are also still seeking interested candidates to join our growing Expert Reviewer Board. All of Aperture’s current Handling Editors are listed, with their bios and contact information, on the Aperture website.
