Research publications collection
The research publications collection is transitioning to the Library in the fourth quarter of 2014.
From 2015 the overall responsibility for the collection of research outputs (publications) will transfer from RIS to the Library. ISTS, BIP, RIS and Library, in consultation with other stakeholders, are already working on a new integrated service delivery model for research outputs which will produce significant benefits including:
- reduction of administrative burden by having a simple online submission process which will require researchers and publications administrative staff to interact with the system only once per output
- improvement in the collection and description of the outputs by replacing manual interventions with automatic harvesting, data cleaning and validation tools, and
- elimination of duplication of effort in Schools, Research Institutes and central units
The new online submission system is now being implemented, for more information see the Collection of Research Outputs Guide , or contact the Repository Services Team in the Library on x25119.
