Designing an Easy-to-Configure Template for Online Scholarly Journals

We work for the Center for Digital Research and Scholarship (CDRS) where we partner with a number of scholarly journals published out of Columbia University to produce the journal’s online component. This lightning talk will share the work we’ve done to customize WordPress using in-house themes and plugins to allow the setup and editing of our scholarly journal websites to be much easier and efficient.

The combination of setting up a multisite for our journal sites and the customizations we’ve made for both administrators and project partners have reduced the need for a developer to be involved in site set up, and have allowed us to better address partner needs when it comes to the addition of journal content to the web.
