Title CRIS and Institutional Repositories
Abstract CRIS (Current Research Information Systems) provide researchers, research managers, innovators and others with a view over the research activity of a domain. IRs (Institutional repositories) provide a mechanism for an organisation to showcase through OA (open access) its intellectual property. Increasingly organizations are mandating that their employed researchers deposit peer-reviewed published material in the IR. Research funders are increasingly mandating that publications be deposited in an open access repository: some mandate a central (or subject-based) repository, some an IR. In parallel publishers are offering OA but replacing subscription-based access by author (or author institution) payment for publishing. However, many OA repositories have metadata based on DC (Dublin Core) which is inadequate; a CERIF (Common-European Research Information Format) CRIS provides metadata describing publications with formal syntax and declared semantics so facilitating interoperation or homogeneous access over heterogeneous sources. The formality is essential for research output metrics, increasingly being used to determine future funding or research organizations.
