11 What are e-Prints? e-Prints are: electronic copies of any research output –journal articles, book chapters, conference papers etc even multimedia –they may include unpublished manuscripts and papers prepared for publication (as copyright allows) Also broader and narrower definitions: Academic output - MIT Peer-reviewed – Prof. Stevan Harnad (open access advocate) An e-Print archive is an internet based repository of such digital scholarly publications which can provide immediate and free worldwide access benefiting both author and reader

12 e-Print archives Subject based e-Print archives (centred on author deposit) –Pioneering example is ArXiv set up by Paul Ginsparg at Los Alamos in 1991ArXiv –Successful in limited subject areas –Free EPrints Software developed at Southampton to encourage more self archiving (JISC funding) Open Archives Initiative software standards developed to enable cross searching (OAI-PMH) Alternate models proposed based on institutional research output

17 Why contribute your work? To make your research more visible and accessible in electronic form To promote your work and that of other academics within your community To use it as a secure store for your research publications - which can help you to respond to the many requests for full text and publication data To contribute to national and global initiatives which will ensure an international audience for your latest research (other universities are developing their own archives which, together, will be searchable by global search tools)

18 Raising the profile…. Articles freely available online are more highly cited. For greater impact and faster scientific progress, authors and publishers should aim to make research easy to access Nature, Volume 411, Number 6837, p. 521, 2001 Steve Lawrence Online or Invisible? ne-nature01/ ne-nature01/
