Key activities over the last 3 months:
- Delivery of Research Excellence Framework workshop. The report will be issued shortly. Due to demand we plan to advertise another workshop on this topic duly amended based on feedback from the last.
- Received the awaited for RCUK Open Access plugin for EPrints and have been testing that against our requirements
- Identified gaps from planned Jisc EPrints deliverables and set up a test version on EPrints. These are mainly bits of metadata that organisations need for management rather than data that is required for reporting to third parties such as REF, RCUK and EU. The plan is to move to live week commencing 16/03/15 and we will advertise some discussions around a demonstration of this. http://e2eoa.org/2015/02/20/eprints-open-access-work/
- Worked with the CASRAI UK Open Access Working Group to try and clarify some of the terminology used to desribe Open Access. http://e2eoa.org/2015/02/20/casrai-uk-open-access-working-group-update/
