Research Data Management, Open Access and REF...


Last week I attended two events in London related to research repositories, with a focus on research data management (RDM), open access (OA) and REF2020. These events were looking at the systems and processes that are likely to be employed by academic institutes, with support coming from EPrints which is the repository software we use at GSA, RIOXX which will enable RADAR to record additional information about OA and HEFCE who have published documentation and policies related to OA. The considerations that research staff will have to make in relation to these areas of practice were also discussed with particular reference to the submission of journal articles and conference proceedings to ones repository.

Further feedback information on OA will be disseminated soon, but if you have any questions related to OA, RDM or REF, do not hesitate to contact me: Robin Burgess (r.burgess@gsa.ac.uk
