Practices and Patterns: the Convergence of Repository and CRIS Functions

Rebecca Bryant1, Pablo de Castro2, Annette Dortmund1, Michele Mennielli3

The recently released report Practices and Patterns in Research Information Management: Findings from a Global Survey, jointly produced by OCLC Research and euroCRIS, shines a light onto a relevant area of repository evolution, namely the ever increasing coupling of its workflows to those traditionally associated with Research Information Management (RIM, or CRIS) systems. Previous landscape analysis had already identified this trend a few years ago, and this comprehensive OCLC/euroCRIS exercise provides new evidence on repositories and RIM systems acting like a single integrated, interoperable system for the purpose of collecting and exposing the institutional research output.

The proposed presentation examines this trend based on nearly 400 survey responses from 40 nations, and provides insights into the increasing overlap of practice, functionality, and workflows, such as the extent to which RIM systems may be playing the role of institutional (literature) repositories, data repositories, and repositories for electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs). The global responses will be analysed together with their regional breakdown. Also relevant is the fact that the most popular protocol identified in the survey is OAI-PMH. Further iterations planned for this survey should help capturing the trends of the landscape evolution in this and other areas.

Building an All-in-one Service: Extending an existing Open Access Repository to a complete Research Information System

Oliver Goldschmidt, Beate Rajski, Gunnar Weidt

TU Hamburg, Germany

The Hamburg University of Technology is using DSpace CRIS for their Open Access publications. In context of the Hamburg Open Science program this repository is going to be extended with a research data repository and supposed to include all researchers, organization units and publications (also non OA, even without any fulltext) building a research information system and a university bibliography.

DSpace CRIS is adopting some recommendations for next generation repositories by the Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR) and is providing entity structures, which a normal DSpace system does not have yet. Thus we believe, that by sticking with DSpace (CRIS) we are well prepared for the future having a good community with active developers.

This presentation shows, how DSpace CRIS helped us to cover the two new components of the repository and which challenges we had to face while developing the new All-in-one system.


RCAAP Repositories Network - Promoting Interoperability

José Carvalho1, Paulo Lopes2, João Moreira2

1University of Minho, Portugal; 2FCT/FCCN

In this presentation we describe a set of initiatives adopted to develop an integrated network of repositories. In particular, we focus on the guidelines, tools, services and open access practices, Furthermore, we demonstrate how such network can be easily implemented in other contexts and and can interact with other systems of the science management ecosystem.
