OpenJournal is a non-profit working group dedicated towards uniting institutions in universalizing access to open academic publications.
There are several institutions and individuals working to create a universal repository of all open-access knowledge. There are few forums for coordinating our efforts. OpenJournal is a working group which meets digitally once a month to facilitate check-ins between institutions, openly discuss blockers and issues, enable effective collaboration and distribution of efforts, and to discuss standards and tools for improving the academic publishing ecosystem.

How it works
We facilitate an online meeting approximately once a month to help institutions share their progress, synchronize their efforts (reduce redundant efforts), discuss blockers, and acquire the resources they need to be succesful. We use github to centralize and coordinate our organization, so we can then decentralize our efforts.
