Accelerating Access - Making Open Access Policies Work From Day One
Successful recruitment of published content into institutional repositories relies on three key components: 1) funder mandates or institutional policies requiring deposit of papers; 2) a means of ensuring that deposit occurs as soon as possible after a paper’s acceptance or publication; and 3) an efficient, intuitive mechanism for helping faculty fulfill their deposit requirements with minimal effort.
Research management systems play an increasingly important role in the scholarly publishing ecosystem, helping collate information about scholars’ publications and enabling institutions to effectively implement and monitor open access policies. . This presentation examines how a research management system can be set up to provide faculty with the tools they need to easily comply with their institutional OA policy and to help repository managers track policy compliance rates across the institution.
