Future of Repositories

Landscape & Horizon


We've had success!


40% of CA researchers now working w international researchers

Open Data


Generational Change

Convergence between publishing & repositories

Lack of interest

Mandates are the stick, where's the carrot?


no more silos


Office of science and technology Policy (OSTP), ARL SHARE proposal competing with CHORUS

Global Research Council, presidents club of funding agencies

New Reward Systems

What can we replace impactfactor with?

Pioneering Examples

Liege Mandate

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

World Bank

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


Non-institutional but subject based

Great example of PRE-Publication workflow

Identifiers of data in the publication, identifiers of publication in the data


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

Data deluge might not be that much of an immediate problem

CDL eScholarship

good integration with publishers

Great example of a consortial model

Difficult: Emergence of Commercial cris systems

Fragmented landscape, different vendors

Some vendors want the repository out of the picture

Because there are less federal reporting responsibilities in the US, CRIS is rising less

Federally funded institutions US

Institutions own the data

More problematic for other institutions: Who owns it? Researchers? Institution?

Future Gazing


HAPPY, Offer added value, altmetrics, Repo's can bring this to the masses, Current adopters are early adopters, add social features



Large Library Budget Shift

Tipping point is coming

Going from licensing content to more funds for repo services

Repo's and advocacy are underfunded right now we need more resources

What is the definition of the future repository?

Repo as infrastructre, Like electricity. People need to flip switches all over the place without knowing where the generator is, Hard to sell invisible infrastructure to funders, Knowledge Base, linking things together, Can the Repo be the hub?

Pedagogic Role, Undergrad research expositions (IDEALS), students go back to others questions, reading eachothers work, Integrating with MOOCs, Moodle, ...

Repositories for Data, We need descriptive metadata for reuse, Moving from readme files to more structured, It's a separate process than gathering publications, more resource intensive, People need to deposit scripts and Software, What are national systems and other actors doing?, HPC guys only interested in their own (big) data, Finland CSC building national platform

Crowdsourced content

Civil war letters, University of Oklahoma example
