Workshop on Cris, Cerif and Institutional Repositories
Maximising the Benefit of Research Information for Researchers, Research Managers, Entrepreneurs and the Public
10 May 2010 12:00 to 11 May 2010 14:00
CNR Central Building, Piazzale Aldo Moro, Roma (participation on invitation only)
The outputs of research – particularly white and grey scholarly publications - are gaining increasing importance in the research (and commercial) environments stimulating further research and having an impact on wealth creation and improvement in the quality of life. Increasingly public research funders (including the EC 7th framework programme) and research institutions mandate open access with deposit in a ‘green’ institutional repository or via ‘gold’ (author institution pays) OA publishing via commercial publishers. It is becoming increasingly important for the metadata associated with research output objects not only to describe the object (and control access, ensure integrity, manage curation/preservation and provide navigation) but also to describe the research context in which the object was generated. From the world of CRIS (Current Research Information Systems) there is an EU Recommendation to member states ‘standard’ for research information named CERIF (Common European Research Information Format). The purpose of the workshop is to construct and stimulate the community interested in both CRIS and repositories, and their metadata, with a view to joint research activity.
The workshop will discuss:
- The intersection of data models and metadata concerning IR and CRIS;
- Metadata schemes compared; metadata standards; metadata evolution;
- Examples of successful applications and technologies; data acquisition of both grey and white literature;
