Manifold is an intuitive, collaborative, open-source publishing platform for interactive scholarly monographs developed by a team of CUNY faculty, staff and students.

Work on the project began two years ago. The aim was to create a responsive platform for interactive books that would help university presses share long-form monographs through an appealing and elegant interface. After many meetings and planning discussions, and following 1300+ commits to our public code repository, the initial version of the platform is ready for review. In April 2017, the Manifold team launched a public beta version of the platform.
