    • OPEN ACCESS WEEK 25 October 2010 Sussex Research Online: An update Kitty Inglis Librarian
    • Sussex Research Online: Background
      • Started as a specially funded 1 year project in 2005, led by Chris Keene in the Library
      • Built using e-Prints software (remains a “market leader” in the IR field)
      • Beta version launched in August 2006
      25 October 2010
    • Sussex Research Online: Background
      • Research-based in terms of content focus
        • Journal articles
        • Book chapters
        • Conference papers
        • Technical reports
        • Working papers
        • Theses (From 2009/10 onwards)
      • SRO currently holds around 1600 items, including over 80 doctoral theses
      25 October 2010
    • Sussex Research Online: Future Plans
      • We were relatively early adopters and got off to a good start
      • Resourcing issues and lack of a “champion” at senior level have resulted in limited development since the initial implementation of SRO
      • Following recent renewed interest in the strategic management of research outputs, approval was given in February 2010 to carry out a project to integrate data held in SRO with research data held in other corporate systems, thereby improving the functionality of data systems for research management
      25 October 2010
    • Institutional Repository Project: Goals
      • The goals of the Project are:
        • To develop and expand the use of SRO as the single repository to house UoS research outputs and associated bibliographic data, interfacing with other appropriate corporate systems
        • To ensure accurate and timely collection and management of data required for the RCUK research outcomes reporting, to be introduced in 2011 and the REF in 2014
        • To enhance the online presentation of the University’s research at the level of both individual faculty and academic unit
      25 October 2010
    • Institutional Repository Project: Deliverables
      • Project deliverables include:
        • A user interface to allow faculty to input publication and other output and outcome information and upload full text version of publications (where permitted) with validation from the Library
        • A systems interface between the IR and other corporate systems
        • Functionality to populate relevant REF and RCUK research outcomes returns
        • Functionality to generate relevant profiles for use on UoS websites
        • Functionality to generate reports on additions to, contents and usage of SRO
        • Defined processes for adding information and content
        • Supporting policy statements
      25 October 2010
    • Institutional Repository Project: Approach
      • A Project Board, chaired by PVC Research, Bob Allison, is overseeing the project
      • The Project is being managed by an implementation team comprising representatives from:
        • Research and Enterprise
        • Library
        • ITS
        • Planning Office
        • Web Team
        • School Administrative Support
      25 October 2010
    • Institutional Repository Project: Timeframe
      • The substantive timescale driver for the delivery of this project is support for REF and RCUK research outcomes reporting
      • SRO in its revised and updated format therefore needs to be available by the beginning of 2011
      25 October 2010
    • Institutional Repository Project: Timetable
      • March 2010 - Confirmation of IR software
      • April 2010 - Project Specification

    • Sussex Research Online: The Finished Product
      • By the end of the project, SRO will:
        • Act as an outward facing “shop window” for UoS research, raising the profile of our output
        • Facilitate the multiple use and sharing of data between systems
        • Support REF, RCUK outcomes reporting and general research management
        • Hold bibliographic data to internationally agreed standards
        • Provide secure, scalable storage for academic staff for their research outputs
        • Support the benefits of Open Access
        • Ensure compliance with requirements of external funding bodies (e.g. research councils, charitable bodies)
