16 Embedding and Repository Questions How joined up/embedded is your [Research] repository? Who are your partners? What are your barriers? Do you have an “institutional repository” or a repository at your institution?

17 An Institutional Exemplar – 3 P’s PeoplePoliciesProcesses

18 People: Partnerships Academic staff Departmental administrators University Library IT Services Corporate Communications Research and Enterprise Human Resources Archives “No Repository is an island.”

19 Processes: Institutional System integration Increasing deposits with our institutional login with (GUID) Providing a new Glasgow Author browse view Surfacing Funder data (from our Research System) Identifying and implementing workflows with colleges and schools Collecting Output, Impact and Esteem data (REF Preparation)

30 MiniREF Lessons Your publications data can never be comprehensive enough in advance of an exercise like this Ensure you are ready to deal with the volume of queries, updates and additional publications which the exercise will elicit Administration features including the opportunity to "impersonate" users (to update records on their behalf) and to run various reports are absolutely vital for managing returns and gauging progress Learn lessons, take onboard feedback and be flexible/nimble enough to make changes to the system and workflows

31 Using publications data for research management University now has comprehensive record of its publications Senior management interest in re-using and analysing this data Publication lists pulled from Enlighten to pre- populate Professorial Performance and Development Review forms Comparison of University’s publications with ERA (Excellence in Research for Australia) journal rankings list
