Had a good chat with a peer site in Europe today and we are looking at the similar work we have both been doing can be brought into one offering – or two or three modules perhaps – providing tools for open access in EPrints.
We used our Glasgow EPrints Open Access screens as the basis and walked through comparing ideas.
We agreed standardising terminology is useful and I sent him details of the CASRAI UK OA Working Group work in this area.
I’ve also suggested that their national reporting for OA is compared to the Jisc spreadsheet that is being used as the basis for RCUK and COAF reporting as well as Jisc analysis of activity. Perhaps we can standardise across these.
More on this soon.
