The KNOB (Netherlands) is the Dutch association for Built Heritage. We already provided open access for the Bulletin KNOB and the OverHolland series. Recently we took a closer look at their website, integrated the serials into the site better, streamlined the membership procedure, revised the content organisation, discovered a treasure trove of content (book reviews or boekbesprekingen in Dutch) and gave the overall site a fresh new look.

The Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP) asked for an upgrade of their website, the website of the Young Academics, and setting up an institutional repository. We also offered to include the journals Transactions and plaNext in the workoffer. Integrated into the AESOP website is an open-source constituent relationship management for non-profits, NGOs and advocacy organisations called CiviCRM, which facilitates membership, event registration, and voting.

Cubic Society (Hong Kong) had a website built for its journal in WordPress. It lacked any indexing. We developed a designerly look for the journal ground up from a barebones Open Journals Systems (OJS) installation. OJS ensures indexing by Google Scholar. Next, we helped the editors meet Elseviers Scopus's requirements and provided the Cubic Journal's submission. It obtained Scopus indexing in late 2022, a year after we started work.
