January 16, 2012 Leave a comment

The two projects IRIOS-2 and CiA provided progress updates at the JISC hosted RIM3 Programme meeting.  See below for a link to the IRIOS-2 presentation given by Simon Kerridge and Kevin Ginty. There were also presentations from RMAS, OSSWatch and JISC InfoKit.

Overall, the event was excellent and the projects have agreed a number of joint initiatives, including working with RMAS and potentially CASRAI.

Keep following the blog for updates on the projects progress.

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.

CIA (CERIF in Action) workshop

December 5, 2011 Leave a comment

I am in the CIA workshop meeting that Anna Clements has organised as part of the “Sunderland CERIF Week”. We have people from Sunderland, St Andrews, euroCRIS, TCD, Thomson Reuters, Symplectic and SONEX here in the room… And also via webex we have NERC, Atira, Exeter and UKOLN…
So far we have had short presentations from CRISPool and IRIOS… With more to come. it is extremely interesting to see how people have used CERIF and what they have learned about what to do… And what not to do… Great input from euroCRIS here… “did you know that you could do it like this…” sort of thing

CERIF Task Group Meetings, 2012

November 28, 2011 Leave a comment

During 2011, the CERIF TG has had an intensive work schedule and has met several times. In the UK there are a lot of CERIF-CRIS implementations and a plethora of JISC-funded projects (such as IRIOS, IRIOS-2, C4D, RMAS, CIA) in which CERIF plays a central part.

The stakeholders wish to unite the UK community and the need is felt for more information and in-depth discussion on CERIF-CRIS, a tutorial and a ‘surgery’ session. Moreover, CERIF has intersections with other TGs, particularly CRIS-IR, CRIS Architecture & Development and the new Linked Open Data TG, but never had joint meetings. Therefore it has been decided to match both needs and take this opportunity to bring the UK community and euroCRIS expert members together.

The meetings will be held on the 9th and 10th of February 2012. UKOLN is willing to host the event and will work jointly with the euroCRIS Secretariat, in consultation with the TG leaders, to make arrangements. Details have still to be elaborated, but the ideas are:

– Thursday 9th of February: Introduction to CRIS, CERIF tutorial, surgery section (UK community + CERIF experts)

– Friday 10th of February: 3 parallel sessions (6 TGs), half a day each

JISC ResearcherID meeting

November 26, 2011 Leave a comment

I was at the latest in the series of JISC researcherID task and finish group meetings in London yesterday. As always it was very informative including presentations from ORCID and the Australian approach to unique identifiers for research data. The JISC group (including representatives from RCs, HESA, HEFCE, Wellcome Trust, UCISA and ARMA are now close to agreeing a proposed way forward for the UK, we hope to undertake a formal consultation with the various stakeholders early in the new year.
For IRIOS-2 an (inter)national id for researchers would of course make the process of matching research outputs with projects much easier if both source systems used the same Id for the same person.
