    • Research Management at Leeds Met• Lack of a centralised system• What is the repository for? • Full-text research outputs (Open Access to research) • Bibliographic database • Carnegie current totals (22/02/12): • 876 records • Of which 96 include full text• Fully mediated via the library• No links to other systems (e.g. iTrent)• Makes it difficult to re-use data (e.g. Staff profiles)
    • Symplectic Elements• LDAP authentication for all academic staff• Manage own research profile (if you want!)• Automatically retrieve bibliographic data from citation databases• Web of Knowledge / PubMed Central / (Scopus?)• Notified by email when new publication retrieved• Easily import data from existing records (e.g. EndNote)• Reuse data to populate dynamic bibliographies on staff webpages• Nominate outputs for the REF• Deposit full-text to the repository with a single click• Will NOT impact on established faculty process• WILL allow you to take greater ownership of your own research profile
    • UniversityResearch Office /Faculty Admin / LLI/ Repository teamImport of existing Feed dynamic Database of Leeds bibliographies to staff /EndNote libraries Met research faculty / research centreManual data entry web-pages LDAP authentication for all academic staff to manage research profile. Link to repository to deposit full-textPrimary data source research outputs (where permitted by copyright.) Full text only? Nominate REF Research Excellence Framework 2014Primary data source submissions Full text + REF Case Studies metadata (Linked to relevant research / OER) Comprehensive One click (eTheses)Potential data source reporting (individual / deposit to(require subscription) faculty / institution) repository Linked to relevant research

    • Open Access• Open dissemination?• Immediate• Free (to use)• Free (of restrictions)• Access to the peer-reviewed literature (and data)• Not vanity publishing• Not a ‘stick anything up on the Web’ approach• Moving scholarly communication into the Web Age
    • Why Open Access?• Greater impact from scientific endeavour• More rapid and more efficient progress of science• Novel information-creation using new and advanced technologies• Better assessment, better monitoring, better management of scienceScience and scholarship are cumulative. Open Access canAccelerate their pace by allowing new connections – big orsmall – to be made faster SPARC 2010
    • Open Access: Who benefits?• Researchers• Institutions• National economies• Science and society
