Open Access Synergy

I’ve just been talking to colleagues who are working on our sister Pathfinder project led by Edinburgh.

We were discussing standardising metadata specifications to be system agnostic.  One project is focussing on EPrints and another on PURE but much of the information is common and having a common specification and language will help with data transferability and understanding.

We also discussed linking up on our first workshop (date to be confirmed probably September 2014) and including some work on the metadata specification and the process requirements at the workshop.

We will also try to co-ordinate some activities  in locations more suited to those organisations based in Scotland.
