1. Landscape & Horizon

1.1. ETDs

1.1.1. We've had success!

1.2. Globalization

1.2.1. 40% of CA researchers now working w international researchers

1.3. Open Data

1.3.1. Grassroots

1.3.2. Generational Change

1.4. Convergence between publishing & repositories

1.5. Lack of interest

1.5.1. Mandates are the stick, where's the carrot?

1.6. Interoperability

1.6.1. no more silos

1.7. Political

1.7.1. Office of science and technology Policy (OSTP)

1.7.1.1. ARL SHARE proposal competing with CHORUS

1.7.2. Global Research Council

1.7.2.1. presidents club of funding agencies

1.8. New Reward Systems

1.8.1. What can we replace impactfactor with?

2. Pioneering Examples

2.1. Liege Mandate

2.1.1. Great example of how policy is practically implemented with the ORBI repository

2.2. World Bank

2.2.1. Repository and Policy have shifted the publication office into the OA Future

2.3. Dryad

2.3.1. Non-institutional but subject based

2.3.2. Great example of PRE-Publication workflow

2.4. DANS-Netherlands

2.4.1. 98% of our data in social sciences and humanities are below 1GB

2.4.2. Data deluge might not be that much of an immediate problem

2.5. CDL eScholarship
