RIOXX: the pragmatic development of a metadata application profile

Developed by Paul Walk and colleagues at EDINA, RIOXX is designed to provide a mechanism to help UK institutional repositories comply with the national funders' requirements for reporting on open access outputs from public funding. RIOXX focuses on applying consistency to the metadata fields used to record research funder and project/grant identifiers and is designed to support the consistent tracking of open-access research publications across scholarly systems.

The development of RIOXX has emphasised the importance of implementation, and has therefore involved software developers closely, even borrowing some software development practice such as continuous, automated testing of deployed 'feeds' of RIOXX records. This webinar will briefly examine some of these novel approaches to metadata profile development.
