The Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR) is calling for fomments on this white paper (13 page PDF). "This white paper outlines a conceptual model for a distributed, international scholarly communication framework, called Pubfair." The idea is to build publishing functionalities over open repositories such as arXiv. In many ways the architecture reminds me of the personal learning environment, though Pubfair also builds in roles for institutions, societies and funders. " Pubfair is designed as an open source software toolkit that can be integrated with existing systems."
