OpenAIR@RGU – monthly update (no.26 – February 2019)

Welcome to the twenty-sixth monthly update on OpenAIR@RGU – RGU’s open access institutional repository. Please direct any queries to the team at publications@rgu.ac.uk.

Service Updates

The Publications Team have now begun the preparation for migrating our internal records and repository records to the Worktribe research information system. We will not be adding any new research outputs to our internal records or to the repository until Monday 11th March. This should not cause any problems in terms of our compliance with the REF Open Access requirements, as long as all researchers send us the accepted versions of their journal articles and conference papers as soon as possible after they have been accepted for publication.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this transition period and we will continue to keep you updated of our progress. If you have any questions, please contact the Publications Team.

Content

The repository currently contains 3,176 links between Schools and outputs (some records are linked to multiple Schools and therefore included in this figure more than once). Some examples of recent additions to the repository include the following outputs:

REMINDER: Temporary freeze on additions to OpenAIR from late February

This is a reminder that the Publications Team will not be adding any new research outputs to our internal records or to the repository from 5pm on Tuesday 26th February until 9am on Monday 11th March.

This is an essential step in our implementation of Worktribe’s Outputs module and will ensure that the process is as smooth as possible. This should not cause any problems in terms of our compliance with the REF Open Access requirements, as long as all researchers send us the accepted versions of their journal articles and conference papers as soon as possible after they have been accepted for publication.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this transition period and will let you know if there are any adjustments to the dates stated above. If you have any questions, please contact the repository librarian at g.r.bray@rgu.ac.uk
