Our work on open access metadata capture was mentioned at the EuroCRIS Paris meeting recently. Pablo De Castro was giving an overview on the new European Commission/OpenAIRE Gold Open Access Pilot https://www.openaire.eu/goldoa/fp7-post-grant/pilot in which Glasgow are participating and included some of his views on open access issues and status across a variety of organisations.
There was reference to the Glasgow paper on experiences with RCUK and Wellcome Trust block funding for open access http://eprints.gla.ac.uk/97107/
Pablo also re-iterated that spreadsheets were troublesome (I’m locked out of our local spreadsheet just now so reminded of that) and used our EPrints screen shot as an example of a system that is gathering data so that spreadsheets can be dispensed with.
A pdf of the slides can be found at the bottom of the page:
During the first day of the International ORCID-CARSAI event in Barcelona on May 18th the E2EOA was singled out for praise. Catherine Grout from Jisc and Ben Ryan from EPSRC were outlining how the UK has engaged with CASRAI and the Open Access reporting group which was informed by the End2End project was seen as the most successful to date.
