I’ve just been listening to the Jisc Monitor update on ‘Monitor Local’
Recording available here:
This is a prototype offering that Jisc are working on for managing open access costs and compliance. It is not meant to replace existing systems but sits alongside commercial, open source, and local systems as another option. So whilst some of us might use EPrints or PURE for all of this other organisations might choose to try out the ‘Monitor Local’ solution should it move to full service.
I have been encouraging working together and we have representation from the Jisc Monitor project on the CASRAI UK Open Access Working group. I very much hope we can agree some standards for open access that can be utilised by all stakeholders and all system solutions.
