    • Dspace@ScienceUofK: Setting up the first Sudanese Institutional Repository at the Faculty of Science, University of Khartoum Pablo de Castro Director GrandIR, CB http://www.grandir.com/en/
    • A short introduction to GrandIR http://www.grandir.com/en/
    • http://openaccessmap.org/
    • http://www.grandir.com/en/references/

    • … and some OAA2011 pictures as well!
    • http://uofkoascir.blogspot.com/ The OASCIR Project
    • OASCIR Project timeline Feb 14th eIFL Call for proposals Feb 28th Deadline for proposal submission - OASCIR Submission Apr 6th 11 proyects selected - OASCIR among them
    • OASCIR Project timeline (II) May 6th First OASCIR repository meeting at Faculty of Science U of K Jul 4th DSpace@ScienceUofK open to U of K IP range Jul 24-30th OASCIR Training Week Aug 17th OASCIR Training Week Report Oct 10th DSpace@ScienceUofK goes live
    • OASCIR Project Highlights 1. Project blog at http://uofkoascir.blogspot.com/ • The whole OASCIR Project history since EIFL Call on Feb 14th • Plus extra posts on evolution of Sudanese research output, university rankings, Open Access journals or alternative ways to publish Open Access before having an Institutional Repository available • A powerful Project dissemination tool
    • 2. OASCIR Training Week (Jul 24-30th) • OA and repository advocacy campaign for Faculty of Science U of K researchers and technical staff • Dspace@ScienceUofK available for the Training Week on a restricted basis (U of K IP range only)
    • 3. Open Access institutional network on the make • As a result of the OASCIR Training Week, opportunities arose to liaise with representatives from projects and institutions outside U of K interested in the pioneering project carried out there • The accretion model put to test
    • 4. DSpace@ScienceUofK Institutional Repository goes live on Oct 10th • Handle system, registered on OpenDOAR and ROAR directories, Usage module available • Previously open just for the U of K IP range
    • 4. DSpace@ScienceUofK Institutional Repository goes live on Oct 10th • Usage module available
    • 4. DSpace@ScienceUofK Institutional Repository goes live on Oct 10th • Usage module available: statistics by country
    • 5. An approach for gradually spreading repository coverage • From U of K Faculty of Science to the whole University: Faculty of Agriculture, Medicine and Mathematics have already expressed interest
    • 6. U of K Open Access publications to be made available through the repository • Meaning an opportunity for getting them standardised (as the Open Access movement spreads through U of K, it becomes important to have U of K Open Access journals featured in DOAJ)

    • 7. Open Access Policy promotion at U of K • Open Access policies such as signing the Berlin Declaration and becoming a BioMed Central Foundation member (in progress) seem like the proper institutional tools for supporting the Institutional Repository Project http://uofkoascir.blogspot.com/2011/07/potential-open-access-policies-at.html
    • 8. Project presentation at different events • Both in Sudan (OASCIR End Project International Conference; KMCA2012 “Knowledge Management Capacity in Africa”, http://kmca2012.blogspot.com/ ) and abroad (OAA2011, …) • Dissemination of good practice
    • 9. OASCIR End of Project International Conference in Khartoum (Nov 17th) • A good opportunity for making the project widely known across U of K and well beyond
    • 10. A mid/long-term goal: improving U of K position at international University web rankings • An opportunity for measuring impact of Open Access Institutional Repositories on host University world ranking
    • Just an example:
    • A two-way feedback model

    • A couple of final reflections as take-home message • What if we compared OJS and DSpace implementation in Africa as a proof for balance between Gold and Green Open Access practice? • African OJS: ~ 8.5% (Jan’10) http://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs-geog
    • A couple of final reflections as take-home message • What if we compared OJS and DSpace implementation in Africa as a proof for balance between Gold and Green Open Access practice? http://www.opendoar.org/
    • A couple of final reflections as take-home message • A bit of self-criticism: It’s not about the price, but sustainability
    • A couple of final reflections as take-home message • After succeeding OASCIR Project at the University of Khartoum, there are good opportunities for re-using know-how in order to set up 1st (or further) IRs in other countries too. PLENTY OF WORK TO BE DONE IN UPCOMING YEARS TO GET EXTRA GREEN DOTS ON THAT MAP!
