Enrich: Repository and Research System Integration William J Nixon Enrich Project Manager, University of Glasgow
University of Glasgow and the REF Submitted data on 1358 staff and more than 22,000 publications across 27 UoAs For comparison we submitted c.5000 outputs across 48 UoAs for RAE 2008 Checked 7000 additional publications identified in Web of Science by Symplectic and accepted around a third of these WoS data now available for ingest into the Repository
Enrich: Background and Drivers Mature and well established institutional repository service (since 2001) at Glasgow A hybrid repository with over 4900 records for published research outputs Publications policy approved by University Senate in June 2008 Library engagement and participation in the RAE and the REF Pilot - working with Research & Enterprise Strong relationships between the Librarys repository managers and the University academic community Well developed Research Management System Recognition that the repository cannot move forward as a disconnected data silo
Enrich: Key Objectives Delivering a comprehensive University-wide repository which will also act as a central publications database (going back to at least 2001) Enhancing usability for depositors with links to the Universitys Research System using SSO Effectively managing the content in the repository including usage statistics and monthly deposit reports Providing clear deposit policies and workflows with academic departments and faculties Creating staff profile pages on the web using data from core institutional systems including Enlighten and the Research System Ensuring compliance with funders open access grant and award policies Improving publicity and dissemination of research outputs
Enrich: Three Key Elements for Success Relationships Strong relationships between repository managers and staff at all levels are vital in supporting the deposit of content. Systems and Processes Technical and administrative processes needed to join-up the existing elements of the research lifecycle which will facilitate the ease of deposit. Policies Management and monitoring of both the Universitys Publication Policy and those of our funders to ensure compliance.
Integration Opportunities Two way links between Enlighten and the Research System (autocomplete and look-up features) Automated alerts from the Research System which highlight to researchers that they must deposit their papers in an appropriate repository, in line with their grant conditions Reports showing Projects/Funders and associated publications Training programme for Library and Research and Enterprise staff to better understand each others systems and facilities (and opportunities to improve the systems)
Enrich will: Enable us to effectively implement the Universitys Publication Policy for mandatory full text deposit from September 2008 onwards Establish links between currently disconnected resources Provide a suite of management information reports and supporting actions which ensure our Publications Policy is effective Ensure a vast increase in the number of awards in the Research System that are made public Maintain a watching brief on the REF and associated repository tools and projects including I-Wire and R4R
