The Open Source
Scholarly Monograph Production Platform
There are basically 3 components - Book Dash, Book Builder, and the Editor.
The editor is built with Substance.io libs and is fully customisable. We call the editor 'Wax' or 'Wax Editor'
Login (standard PubSweet component)
The login component is a standard PubSweet Login component
Common Book Dash. User sees only the books they are working on.
The Book Dash displays all the books that the user is assigned to.
Production Editors only can create and delete books (note: for different Publishers roles and permissions can be customised).
Book Builder (empty).
The above shows an empty (new) Book Builder.
The Book Builder is divided into three divisions - Front Matter, Body, Back Matter.
The language for the Book Builder is taken from the Chicago Manual of Style.
There is one 'meta' category of content - a component.
Components can be chapters, parts, or a front or back matter component.
The Book Builder supports drag and drop components, as well as creating, renaming, and deleting components.
If connected to an INK instance it is possible to upload docx files into chapters, or to upload an entire book (see video later in the slide deck).

The blue half circles on the left indicate that the component has content.
Changing the type of component in the Front Matter.
Front and back matter components can be named from a preset drop down list.
Alternatively you can name the component anything you like.
Chapter lock in action (other user editing ch2)
When a user edits a component (eg. a chapter) then that chapter is locked and no other users can edit it while the lock is in place.
Team Manager (per book, only accessible by Production Ed).
Every book has a team. This can be changed per publisher.
