There is a number of open-source software platforms you will encounter during your work with punctum books. We list them below. All of these instances (except PubPub) are kindly managed by our friends over at


Bookstack is the platform that we use for the internal and public-facing documentation of punctum's work processes, guidelines, and FAQs.


We use InvoiceNinja for invoicing.


Mattermost is a chat program that we use for our internal communication (we have phased out most of internal emails). Anyone can create an account and chat with us there.


We use Metabase for the data visualization of usage statistics. This is still under development as we try to incorporate a variety of stats on sales and downloads.


NextCloud is used as the cloud platform on which all our files live. This is also where the version of record of your publication is hosted.


PubPub, developed by the Knowledge Futures Group, is our blogging environment.


We use Thoth for our metadata management. This is also the place you can download the metadata of your own publication, for example if you want to import them into a reference manager like Zotero or BibDesk. punctum books is one of the founders of Thoth.
