PKP has developed open source software for the online management and publishing of (primarily) open access journals and books. PKP is also collaborating with other global associations on journal-development initiatives in Africa.

In the first part of our Skype-based video interview, Dr. John Willinsky joined us to discuss the changes and challenges in academic communication and explain the idea of "public knowledge." In this second part, Dr. Willinsky goes on to discuss open access initiatives and who would stand to lose if such initiatives were to fully succeed.
