Introduction

This website is a catalogue of publications from the open access publishers in the ScholarLed consortium (Mattering Press, meson press, Open Book Publishers, punctum books, African Minds, and mediastudies.press). It’s an example of constructing a dynamic computational publication using a workflow of Jupyter Notebook files, Python code, and Quarto technical publishing software.

All bibliographic metadata is retrieved from Thoth, an open metadata management and dissemination system for open access books designed as part of the COPIM project. Thoth has a range of open APIs for metadata retrieval and all metadata is licensed as Creative Commons Zero (CC0).
