Output Brief Description
Project Blog http://e2eoa.org/ Story of our work together developing technical and process solutions for open access.
Workshop Report ‘Open Access Issues and Potential Solutions’Workshop Report ‘Open Access Issues and Potential Solutions’ This workshop took place early in the project to facilitate initial sharing of issues and potential solutions. What were the issues in September 2014?
Case study ‘Capturing and Reporting Open Access Metadata in EPrints’  Some details of the case study are contained in the pages of the blog http://e2eoa.org/.

A formal article was published March 2016:

McCutcheon, V and Eadie, M, Managing open access with EPrints software: a case study, Insights, 2016, 29(1), 45–52; DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1629/uksg.277

How we have managed open access using EPrints


Case study ‘Capturing and Reporting Open Access Metadata in Hydra’

Some details of the case study are contained in the pages of the blog http://e2eoa.org/

The formal case study is at:



This case study describes the applicability of the metadata profile in Hydra, providing a basis for interoperability with other similar systems.
Workshop Report ‘Embedding future REF requirements’http://eprints.gla.ac.uk/104395/

An additional workshop  that was not part of the forlal deliverables took place looking at technical issues http://e2eoa.org/2016/04/29/open-access-technical-workshop-un-report/

Utilising close links with Funding Councils’ we explored the expected reporting and exemption requirements and how these can be embedded into existing systems.
Workshop Report ‘Open Access and the REF’


Great summary by one of the attendees.  Barry Hall, Sunderland is available at:


A further Open Access for REF workshop took place 1oth September due to demand.



Standard EPrints ‘RCUK’ open access reporting mechanism.  Further discussion on-going with community and Jisc Monitor project. Please contact research-openaccess@glasgow.ac.uk for latest information and code.  Code at https://github.com/eprintsug/OpenAccess Glasgow successfully tested and shared a standard EPrints report for reporting to RCUK.   Work is on-going on testing the API recently made available for Monitor UK based on the same field content.
 Improved EPrints functionality to link awards to outputs


 Code made available to the community but further discussion will take place in EPrints community.  This output was delayed as  RIOXX and REF plug-ins for EPrints were delivered later than expected and we needed more time to understand what these might deliver.
Summary of Technical Workshop where technical solutions in a number of different software applications and work in progress to address open access requirements were shared. http://eprints.gla.ac.uk/119076/
