1 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov SPARC Digital Repositories Meeting 2008 DRIVER: Open Access to Information through Digital Repository Networks in Europe and Worldwide Norbert Lossau, Scientific Coordinator; Director Göttingen State and University Library

2 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov The Berlin Declaration requests Free and unrestricted access to sciences and human knowledge representation worldwide (October 2003) Needs a global, interoperable, trusted, long- term repository infrastructure DRIVER has built the nucleus of this infrastructure

3 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov DRIVERs vision All research institutions in Europe and worldwide make all their research publications openly accessible through institutional repositories

4 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov General Information: DRIVER II Duration: 24 months Budget: 2.7 m EUR Timeplan: 12/07 -11/09 Main Deliverables: – Digital Repository Infrastructure – European Digital Repository Confederation Funded by the European Commission, Research Infrastructure Unit, FP 7 Consortium Partners – Univ.of Athens (GR) – Univ. of Bielefeld (GE) – CNR-ISTI (IT) – STICHTING SURF (NL) – Univ. of Nottingham (UK) cont… – Univ. of Bath (UK) – Univ. of Warszawski (PO) – Univ. of Gent (BE) – Univ. of Goettingen (GE) – Danish Technical University (DK) – Universidade do Minho (PT) – Narodna in univerzitetna knijznica (SLO)

5 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov DRIVER II activity areas and outcomes Open Source Software for repository networks Digital Repository Network Infrastructure Services Organization of Digital Repository Infrastructure Providers Community Building & Maintenance Confederation D-NET DR Infrastructure DRIVER Portal & Wiki

6 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov DRIVER: Establishes a Confederation of Repository Communities Launch planned for October 2009 Initial focus on Europe, but with international alliances from the beginning Members and strategic partners invited: –European and international repository communities –Subject based communities –Repository system providers –Service providers –Political, research, funding etc. organisations A key question? Establish a new, independent legal body or merge with an existing organisation? <=DRIVER Advisory Board established on the 2 July 08 in Istanbul; wider consultation meeting took place on the 16 November in Baltimore

7 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov

8 DRIVER Actors User communities Service providers, e.g. DRIVER Consortium National communities Subject communities etc. Data providers (EU Repositories) Aggregation/ Harmonisation system Application... Repository network managers e.g. DRIVER Consortium National communities System Managers e.g. DRIVER Consortium National communitie s etc. Operating System Application < Original slide provided by Paolo Manghi, CNR, Italy

9 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov 2008 Existing Repository Aggregation & Service Systems OAI-PMH Institution Site OAI-PMH Institution Site OAI-PMH Institution Site … Aggregator Information Space Index Search Index UI … Such as: OAIster BASE DAREnet < Original slide provided by Paolo Manghi, CNR, Italy

10 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov 2008 Reuse Functionality sharing #3 Enabling Layer Middleware OAI-PMH Aggregator Index Search Index UI … OAI-PMH Institution Site … OAI-PMH Institution Site OAI-PMH Institution Site … UI Search Index Aggregator User Profiling … Others Aggregator UI Search Index Store Functionality Services Institution Site Dynamic, distributed Run-time Infrastructure Content Resources < Original slide provided by Paolo Manghi, CNR, Italy

11 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov D-NET Software: DRIVER Network- Evolution-Toolkit Version 1.0 released under the Open Source Apache License to the public on the 20 June 2008 The DRIVER Infrastructure Software includes: Repository network administration software (such as the Repository Network Manager, Resource Monitoring) End-user services (Search, Browse, Profiling) Support service to local repository managers and aggregators (Validation Tool)

12 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov DRIVER Infrastructure First implementation in operation: DRIVER European Information Space (DEIS), maintained by the DRIVER Consortium Supports three groups of users: 1.The repository network manager 2.The service provider 3.The researcher, reader, public

13 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov 2008 Software implementation into the DRIVER infrastructure OAI-PMH Institution Site Index Search Index UI … OAI-PMH Institution Site … OAI-PMH Institution Site OAI-PMH Institution Site … Enabling Layer Middleware UI Search Index Store Aggregator User Profiling … Others Aggregator Service Kits Aggregator Store Aggregator Manager Content Resources Dynamic, distributed Run-time Infrastructure < Original slide provided by Paolo Manghi, CNR, Italy

14 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov 2008 Repository Workflow Registration –Ready for human and automatic validation Manual and Automatic validation –Content quality and DRIVER Guidelines Harvesting –Manager Service: requires allocation of stores for containing the harvested records –OAI-PMH original metadata records (Dublin Core et al.) Transformation –Manager Service: requires allocation of stores and indices for containing the generated records and enabling their interrogation –Transforming harvested records into DRIVER Metadata Format records (DMF)

20 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov DRIVER Software and Infrastructure Deployment Possible deployment use cases, examples: Countries, communities or organisations using the existing DRIVER instance, e.g. by customising the portal (example: RECOLECTA, Spain) Countries running an additional, independent instance of a DRIVER infrastructure National aggregators or local repositories using the DRIVER Validator Tool Current challenge to the DRIVER Consortium –Limited capacity for technical support

23 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov 2008 How does DRIVER relate to national repository communities? National communities are usually represented by country correspondents –One institution or a group of institutions takes responsibility to build a national repository community (like DARENet-NL, SHERPA-UK, OA-Netzwerk-GE, RECOLECTA-ES, HAL-FR) Country correspondents … –Maintain the national repository information on the DRIVER Wiki –Organise repository events in their countries –Translate repository guidelines and other relevant information into national languages –Build up national data aggregators, clean data, can offer additional services

24 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov

25 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov How does DRIVER relate to international repository communities? DRIVER sees its mission as –Catalyst for a global repository infrastructure –Develop and maintain the European repository infrastructure node DRIVER liaises already with institutions and initiatives from the majority of European countries, the U.S., Canada, Latin America, China, Japan, India and Africa DRIVER has signed MoUs with SPARC Europe, LIBER, eIFL, Recolecta Spain, OA-Netzwerk Germany and DRF Japan

26 SPARC, Baltimore, 17/18 Nov Further actions needed … Lobby for Open Access mandates from all funding organisations Revise contracts with (STM) publishers – build Open Access consortia: –convert current subscription payments to subscription + institution-wide green road IR deposit permission (cf. pilot Springer Open Choice agreements) –agree on automated article transfer from the publisher to institutional repositories (European PEER project) –Develop automated metadata transfer workflows from article databases into institutional repositories (e.g PubMed > Fact Science research database) Support Open Access journal publishing Support Open Access book publishing (European OAPEN project) Develop and support new types of citation & impact measuring services Develop and provide long-term archiving services for repositories…

27 Publishing and the Ecology of European Research (PEER) EC eContentplus Vorgesehener Start: 1. September 2008 Laufzeit: 3 Jahre Partner: International STM Headoffice, ESF, Universität/SUB Göttingen, MPG/MPDL, INRIA, SURF, Universität/UB Bielefeld

28 Purpose of PEER Publishers and research community collaborate Develop an observatory to monitor the impact of systematically depositing stage-two outputs on a large scale Gather hard evidence to inform future policies

29 Depositing activities 15 major STM publishers (incl. Elsevier, Springer, Wiley etc.) Ca. 300 Journal Approx. 20,000 articles per year (~60,000 articles for the project) 50% of the articles: Publisher > Repositories 50% of the articles: Author > Repositories
