“The UKCoRR Members’ Day took place on November 13th and, at very short notice, was held online due to the ongoing technical problems currently being experienced by The British Library, who were the original hosts for the day long event.
Our panel session, entitled “CORE, repositories and supporting UKRI OA Policy” saw substantial participation with more than 120 people from U.K. HEIs in attendance. The session opened with a presentation from Professor Petr Knoth, Head of CORE. This presentation detailed CORE’s recent advancements and developments planned for the coming months, with the focus on how the tools and services being built by CORE can best serve the repository communities’ needs, with particular regard to the UKRI’s Open Access policy.
To be considered compliant with UKRI’s open access requirements, research articles made available via repositories are required to meet the following technical requirements. The relevant CORE Dashboard tool for each requirement is shown in orange:
“PIDs for research outputs must be implemented according to international recognised standards. …” (OAI Resolver)
“article-level metadata must be implemented according to a defined application profile that supports the UKRI Open Access Policy …” (Rioxx metadata validator)
“… deposit the Author’s Accepted Manuscript (or Version of Record, where the publisher permits) in an institutional or subject repository at the time of final publication …” (OA Compliance module)
“… common unique PIDs for research management information (for example identifiers for funders or organisations) are strongly encouraged. ORCID, the researcher identifier, must be supported …” (Enrichments tab)…”
