Comprehensive Metadata Profile for Open Access

We have been updating our spreadsheet of ‘all the possible fields we might need for Open Access’ and we hope to formalise this via CASRAI-UK with whom I am in discussion via my role as co-chair of the UK Open Access working group.

We will try to issue a next draft as soon as possible so that people can ask for further clarification, provide corrections etc.  It will be an iterative process as new requirments emerge e.g. REF open access reporting requirements are due to be announced soon and we also want to consider linkages beyond open access e.g. with recommendations of the UKRISS report around data to collect for publications.
