EPR2: EPrints Interest Group 2: Supporting Open Scholarship
Building a bijou digital archive
University of London Computer Centre, United Kingdom
This presentation relates the experience of building a small open access archive of digitised documents.
I start by looking back at my ten years experience as a developer working with the EPrints digital repository platform - this experience was the foundation for my first approach which used EPrints as the basis for the archive.
I then move forward to identify the strengths and weaknesses of this approach, ultimately leading to my decision to migrate the digital archive to an alternative platform in order to provide a richer user experience.
Open research repository for organic agriculture
1International Centre for Research in Organic Food Systems (ICROFS), Denmark; 2Aarhus University
The Open Access archive Organic Eprints (www.orgprints.org) has developed since the start in 2002 so that it now includes more than 16,000 items and gets more than 240,000 visits per month. The archive is open for all to use and registered users can deposit their research publications from refereed journals as well as non-refereed sources. Organic Eprints is the largest database in the world with publications about Organic Agriculture & Food Systems research. Organic Eprints have 26 national editors checking the deposits for bibliographical correctness and subject relevance. Organic Eprints has adapted the use of keywords from an external thesaurus, AgroVoc.
