Repositories Support Project – Embedding Guide and Toolkit

December 14, 2011 Leave a comment

The Repositories Support Project Embedding Guide and Toolkit has been published by the Repositories Support Project and will help institutions to get the best value from their institutional repositories through integration with other university systems, particularly research management systems.

 It is aimed at repository staff but will be of interest to other groups such as academic librarians and research management staff.

 Over the past few years, there have been a number of JISC funded projects and other institutional initiatives which have focused on the embedding of research repositories into organisational systems, policies and workflows. The results have been documented in websites, blogs, conference presentations etc but they have not been synthesised into a coherent whole. This guide aims to do just that.

Higher Education Business and Community Interaction Survey

December 13, 2011 Leave a comment

I am sure like us many HEI’s are busy finalising HEBCIS returns for 2010-11.

I am optimistic that initatives like IRIOS will facilitate such returns in future as we drive to record and utlise more infomation about ‘non-standard’ research outputs such as public lectures, exhibitions and performance arts.

Workshop… IDs

December 5, 2011 Leave a comment

At the CIA CERIF workshop in Sunderland we have just had a good decision on how to implement links to IDs of external systems. hopefully there will be some concrete suggestions coming soon!
This discussion will continue of the CERIF TG Forum… So if you are interested watch that space.

Lizzie Dipple from Symplectic has just informed us that the BRUCE project final report (available soon) will have some CERIF issues listed that the project dealt with, which would probably be useful for others new to CERIF to learn from

More from the CIA workshop… CERIFy this time

Kevin Kiely, TCD
TCD RIS and TR incites, data exchange, two way
InCites uses separate fields for year, month, day
Brigitte did a mapping from InCites to CERIF
Ids are an issues again.. How should they be dealt with
they have a long list of supported publication types
Plenty of actual CERIF XML examples
In summary the system
passes CERIF XML data from the TCD CRIS to TR, they matched data and then returned TR metrics from InCites in CERIF XML back to the TCD CRIS. NB it was citation counts rather than a whole list of citations… But still useful!
Jason Young from TR also chipped in to the presentation and Q&A
