1,604 views

Published on

OA‐Network collaborates with other associated German Open Access‐related projects and pursues the overarching aim to increase the visibility and the ease of use of the German research output. For this end a technical infrastructure is established to offer value‐added services based on a shared information space across all participating repositories. In addition to this OA‐Network promotes the DINI‐certificate for Open Access repositories (standardization) and a regularly communication exchange in the German repository landscape.

OA Network: Heading for Joint Standards and Enhancing Cooperation: Value‐Added Services for German Open Access Repositories

  1. 1. The 5th International Conference on Open Repositories Madrid, July 6th‐9th, 2010 Open Access Network Heading for Joint Standards and Enhancing Cooperation: Value‐Added Services for German Open Access Repositories Stefan Buddenbohm Maxi Kindling Göttingen State and University Library Humboldt Universität zu Berlin buddenbohm@sub.uni‐goettingen.de maxi.kindling@ibi.hu‐berlin.de
  2. 2. All German research institutions interlink their Open Access repositories and create an overarching collection of publications through the information infrastructure of OA Network.
  3. 3. Our starting point: German repository landscape in 2010 • 200+ institutional and disciplinary repositories ‐ Various repository platforms operational ‐ Large differences in design, size of collections, and coverage ‐ Heterogenous types of content • Enhancement of content visibility on a national and international  level by various means ‐ Widespread implementation of OAI‐PMH, but still deficits in  standardization and data harmonization ‐ Prominent repository registries, repository collaborations, search engines:
  4. 4. Reasons for the still missing breakthrough of OA • The German situation: – Reputation of OA publications – Critical mass of content – Scattered landscape, i.e. collections – Non‐standardisation – Technical, legal, and organisational support for authors – Repositories as “Unorte” Repository?
  5. 5. Institutional background
  6. 6. OAN in a nutshell Target Group: Repository operators Function: Data •Collect, clean, aggregate and enrich data •make data accessible via open interfaces •integrate data in external projects/networks Target Group: End users Target Group: Developers Function: Services Function: Development •Offers services for users on a web site •Offers a testbed with the real metadata for data  •put them into a common context of use analysis and prototype development
  7. 7. A more technical  point of view
  8. 8. Value‐added services of OAN • Linking and citation analysis ‐ Co‐project DOARC  (Distributed Open Access Reference and Citation Services) • Usage statistics ‐ Based on local log files, aggregated at a central service provider ‐ Co‐project OA Statistics
  9. 9. Value‐added services of OAN • More services to be implemented by third parties ‐ Communication via REST API of OAN ‐ OAN as open infrastructure • End user‐oriented portal ‐ Portal offering various services: Browse & search ‐ Configurable RSS feed ‐ Export of bibliographic data (Endnote, Citavi) ‐ My selection (shopping basket) ‐ Navigation to citing and cited publications
  10. 10. Technological approach: aggregator function • For international service providers via OAI API • For subject repositories and gateways • And to institutional repositories
  11. 11. The OAN search box
  12. 12. Example of result list
  13. 13. Detailed result page
  14. 14. Organisational approach • Improve the coordination and collaboration between operators of  documents, publication services (mainly repositories) and developers • Promoting the DINI Certificate for Document and Publication Services • Support for the repository community,  e.g. guidelines, workshops • Communication of the above‐mentioned services  by several means to the  end users  • Cooperation with partners, e.g. Information platform Open‐Access.net
  15. 15. Services for the German OA community • Promoting the development and implementation of innovative  competencies and technologies • Providing enhanced search and retrieval functionalities  • Functioning as a showcase for scientific OA content • Networking and supporting collaborations between OA projects 
  16. 16. Collaborative use of a pool of networked repositories
  17. 17. Summary
