[BOAI] COAR Report on Sustainable Practices for Populating Repositories
From: "Mueller, Katharina" <katharina.mueller AT sub.uni-goettingen.de>
<Please excuse any cross-posting> Of possible interest to members of this list: The Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR) announces the publication ↵ of the report, Incentives, Integration, and Mediation: Sustainable Practices ↵ for Populating ↵ Repositories<http://www.coar-repositories.org/activities/repository-content/sustainable-practices-for-populating-repositories-report/>. The report profiles a variety of successful practices for populating repositories collected from around the world. There is an active, thriving community of open access repositories worldwide ↵ and their visibility is rising as funding agencies and governments implement ↵ open access policies. Still, repositories must continue to adopt strategies ↵ that demonstrate their value to the wider research community. The aim of this ↵ report is to assist the global repository community in implementing sustainable ↵ methods for recruiting content. The profiles were gathered from organizations ↵ across the globe, and represent a mixture of approaches involving the ↵ introduction of incentives/mandates; integration of the repository with other ↵ institutional services; and mediation of the deposit process. The practices ↵ reflect a tradition of innovation and openness in the repository community, and ↵ are characterized by creative approaches to staffing, imaginative software ↵ developments, and adoption of novel policies. The report will also be available soon in Spanish. COAR is a young, fast growing association of repository initiatives with a ↵ membership of over 100 institutions worldwide from 35 countries and 4 ↵ continents. Its mission is to enhance the visibility and application of ↵ research outputs through a global network of open access digital repositories. ↵ For more information about COAR, please visit the website ↵ www.coar-repositories.org<http://www.coar-repositories.org/> Kathleen Shearer Executive Director, COAR http://www.coar-repositories.org/ m.kathleen.shearer AT gmail.com<mailto:m.kathleen.shearer AT gmail.com> AT KathleeShearer Skype: kathleen.shearer2
