Repository policies Repositories need policies. Those that operate without any formal endorsement from the organisation tend to flounder. A repository policy may cover a number of issues, the most important being what the organisation requires of authors and what the repository is going to house. More than half of the repositories surveyed have a formal written procedure stating what types of material and what file formats can be accepted and so forth. The same number have a written policy stating the institutional aims for the repository and what is expected of authors.
Making the business case The case for a repository must be made to the institution or community that will own and sustain it. A number of business reasons may be behind the establishment of a repository. The main ones are listed below: – increasing the visibility and dissemination of research outputs – providing free access to research outputs – the preservation and curation of research outputs – the collection of research outputs – research assessment and monitoring – a place for teaching and learning materials – the development of special (or legacy) digital collections In almost all cases surveyed the library has been one of the entities making the case for a repository.
The library provides a stable and reliable support structure to departments by supplying a broad range of information, training, help tools, and guidance in intellectual property rights (IPR) issues. This has also contributed to departmental take-up. Minho is aiming for 100% coverage of its current publications. At present it is achieving 40% coverage of its annual academic output. However, Minho’s library envisages that its potential new important role as the university CRIS, with the further implementation of tools to assist the researcher in the research process and the further analysis of incentive-building mechanisms, will reap even more results.
