Current and prospective members of the Symplectic Elements User community are invited to participate in an informal chat in the lounge. We will discuss Research Repository Integration and populating Researcher Profiles along with other Institutional systems.
Some suggested topics and areas of interest are:
- Research Repository Integration involves the complex mixture of metadata and full text files – share your experiences managing full text uploads
- Public data and private data – is there a consensus?
- Workflow processes range from a single approval step to a more complex check across multiple administrative groups. What have you learned about best practice?
- Non traditional outputs like Creative Works – is there common ground
- How are you managing “On Acceptance” deposit of Research Outputs. This is in relation to funding agencies requiring deposits from the time a publication is accepted by the Publisher.
- Open Access Policy – how it translates into system functionality
- Repository Platforms – DSpace, Fedora and EPrints
- Digital Collection Policy – is this a growth area or overkill?
Populating Research Profiles and other systems:
- API’s and Reporting databases – how complex are your update routines and what works best for your institution?
- Formatting citation styles for Research Output types – do you have a foolproof solution?International Standards – do you comply and what is your view on the future of global profiling
- Respect and Trust – does your institution value the metadata collections made available?
- Innovative solutions to technically vexing problems
- Data Warehouse solutions – survey of the space
- The one size fits all record – good idea or setting yourself up to fail?
