Current project work includes:

  • In response to an approach from HEFCE to create an author-facing service to support them in complying with the open access requirement for a future REF exercise, the CRC is developing SHERPA/REF, with the intention of launching a service in summer 2015.
  • The Journal Research Data Policy Bank (JoRD) project is investigating publisher policies on the research data that underlies articles and research outputs, with a view to scoping a possible future service in the area.
  • The Open Access Repositories Registry (OARR) project is rewriting the structure and functionality of the OpenDOAR service, ready for a launch of our new upgraded service in 2015.
