2nd Workshop on CRIS, CERIF and Institutional Repositories "Integrating Research Information: CRIS+OAR"
The outputs of research are gaining increasing importance in the research (and commercial) environments stimulating further research and innovation. It is also becoming more and more important to describe the research context in which results were generated. The overall aim of Europe is to have access to research information without barriers. Access to research information (projects, all types of results and full content where this is possible) is part of the strategy of the research performing institutions. Also evaluation of research is increasingly dependent on accurate and comprehensive information available in both CRIS and OAR. Scholarly communication is changing and new models are required. The ‘fourth paradigm’ of research is gaining importance. The purpose of the workshop is to maintain and stimulate the community interested in both CRIS and repositories, and their metadata, with a view to joint research activity. The target audience includes among others: Researchers, Research Managers and evaluators, Librarians, Entrepreneurs, Systems Designers and Implementers.
