Welcome to the thirty-first 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 finished migrating our internal records to the Worktribe research information system and are now focusing on tidying these before we begin rolling out training for researchers on how to use the new system. Meanwhile, we are continuing to work on migrating our repository records to Worktribe as well. 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.

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

Funding bodies publish final guidance for REF 2021

The ‘Guidance on submissions’ (REF 2019/01) details how UK universities should make their submissions to REF 2021 and the ‘Panel criteria and working methods’ (REF 2019/02) describes how the REF 2021 panels will assess this research. The documents have been developed by the REF’s expert panels and the four funding bodies following consultation with the sector in summer 2018. The changes from the last REF in 2014 to REF 2021 largely follow the recommendations set out in 2016 in an independent review led by Lord Stern. The REF Steering Group, made up of representatives from the four funding bodies, has provided background information on some of the key decisions that have been taken.

Welcome to the twenty-fifth 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 are in the process of migrating our internal records and the content of OpenAIR to the Worktribe research information system. We hope to go live with the new “Outputs” and “Repository” modules of Worktribe in March this year. In order to ensure the stability of our data during the transition, there will be a temporary freeze on all new additions to our internal records and the repository towards the end of February. Normal service will then resume after a couple of weeks. More detailed information will be given nearer the time.
