Semantic Publishing: The Future Open Textbook ‚Äď a Contribution to NFDI4Culture

Semantic Publishing is a new open-source software research project contributing to the techstack for the creation of multi-format textbooks.

The project is based at the Open Science Lab ‚Äď TIB and contributes to the German consortium of the National Research Infrastructure for Culture (NFDI4Culture).
