 Hi all,

 What do we need to do to increase usage of Australian repositories? The
AOASG has posted a new blog addressing this question:

 Four issues restricting widespread green OA in Australia -
http://aoasg.org.au/2013/08/15/four-issues-restricting-widespread-green-oa-=
in-australia
/

 Australia is a world leader in many aspects of open access. We have
institutional repositories in all universities, funding mandates with the
two main funding bodies, statements on or mandates for open access at a
large number of institutions and a large research output available in many
open access avenues. A summary of centrally supported initiatives in this
area is here<http://aoasg.org.au/2013/03/19/centrally-supported-open-access=
-initiatives-in-australia/>
.

  However we can do more. This blog outlines four impediments to the
widespread uptake of open access in Australia: a lack of data about what
Australian research is
available<http://aoasg.org.au/2013/08/15/four-issues-restricting-widespread=
-green-oa-in-australia/#I1>
, Copyright transfer
agreements<http://aoasg.org.au/2013/08/15/four-issues-restricting-widesprea=
d-green-oa-in-australia/#I2>
, the academic reward
system<http://aoasg.org.au/2013/08/15/four-issues-restricting-widespread-gr=
een-oa-in-australia/#I3>
 and improved national discovery
services<http://aoasg.org.au/2013/08/15/four-issues-restricting-widespread-=
green-oa-in-australia/#I2>.
We suggest some solutions for each of these issues. =85.

Comments welcome.
