  14. 14. Context• Government Policy • David Willets: UK government “will make publicly funded research accessible free of charge to readers. Giving people the right to roam freely over publicly funded research will usher in a new era of academic discovery and collaboration, and will put the UK at the forefront of open research.” • Neelie Kroes (EC): 48 billion Euros for FP7 projects conditional on OA publication in lead-up to horizon 2020 (PEER and Nordbib, June 2012) • Finch Report – Gold OA recommended route to Open Access• Funder Mandates • RCUK write to University VCs in July mandating use of RoS and instructing to use RIOXX guidelines for funder info• Publisher Practises • PEER end of project report - Large-scale EC-funded project (€4.2 million, 3 year, 9 months) to model impact of Green OA on STM publishers • Green OA has positive impact on publisher downloads, Gold OA is preferred business model Open Repositories 2012 14
  15. 15. Scope• Gold OA Payment Mechanisms • Currently do not exist – will be barrier to implementing Gold OA • Cannot be entrusted to publishers • Must be run by trusted middleware broker supported by UK/European FE institutions • Must be transparent to allow APCs to be governed by free market for journals Open Repositories 2012 15
  16. 16. Scope - 2• Research Data Sets • Included within RIOXX guidelines, focus of Nordbib conference • Mandated by NERC, ESPRC • Future first step to create a registry of data sets• OpenAIRE co-operation • Projected MoU with RepNet as first step • Very interested in more closely integrated set of RepNet Wave 1 for DRIVER • Interest in co-operation on Gold OA, Data sets Registry Open Repositories 2012 16
  17. 17. Focus• Optimising wave 1 components • SIPG executing business proposals • Closer integration of existing services within data-driven infrastructure • Comprehensive set of tools: Publisher, funder policies; deposit tools; reporting, impact analysis tools• Wave 2 service components - process • Curation micro-services – in contact with U3C DCC • JISC RI Call, JISC Elevator • OR12 workshop • OARR tender • Search consultancy • Advisory Board input Open Repositories 2012 17

  22. 22. Wave 2 Candidates - current• Curation micro-services • Characterisation, Validation, Metadata Creation • DROID (Digital Record Object identification) • JHOVE – Java library to detect file formats Done by IR • NLNZ metadata extractor software tools • Identification • Online registry on tech file formats – • PRNOM, GDFR UDFR • Migration and Transformation • Complex, expensive, outwith scope, done elsewhere • Devise policy • Necessary if RepNet successful, IRs become central, post Wave 2• Improving Metadata • Bringing in DOIs from CrossRef • Data-mining metadata from PDFs (Uni Novi Sad) • OpenAIRE tools (GROBIT) Open Repositories 2012 22
  23. 23. Summary• Wave 1 of RepNet provides an excellent service to support Green and Gold Open Access• Full range of deposit, reporting and policy tools in place• Will justify JISC’s investment in IR infrastructure• Move to data-driven infrastructure and closer integration• Wave 2 to focus on micro-services• Sustainability plan in progress to support transition from project to service in March 2013 Open Repositories 2012 23
