Announcement: Announcing the Next Phase of PressForward!

The PressForward team is pleased to announce that the PressForward project has been awarded a three-year, $736,042 grant by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. PressForward, launched in 2011 by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, is an innovative scholarly communication research project that is researching methods and developing technologies to facilitate scholarly communication in digital spaces. In 2014 we released the PressForward plugin, a free and open-source plugin for the WordPress platform that uses innovative technical tools to aggregate, select, discuss, curate, and disseminate scholarship from across the web.  This is the third phase of the ongoing project, which will continue until November 2018.  Phase 3 will see PressForward adopted by new partners in the sciences and increased outreach workshops and trainings that demonstrate the plugin for scholarly communication communities.
