Similar to traditional academic publishing, academic institutions end up with their content distributed in many platforms and struggle to a) get a copy of their own research or b) measure the impact of all of their research outputs.
Inspired by the wonderful work done by the team at Unpaywall, we want to make it easy for all institutions to have a copy of all of their research outputs in their repository
"Institutional Repository managers can use Unpaywall data to find OA resources that faculty have posted online, without depositing in their IR. These can be automatically ingested, significantly increasing IR coverage without needing to convince faculty to deposit. Repositories of all sizes have used Unpaywall data in this way.”
To ensure researchers and institutions can seamlessly track the impact of their outputs, we currently aggregate content from a large number of Publisher Repositories eg. Springer Nature Data Repository (https://springernature.figshare.com/) and the following Generalist repositories:
Our efforts will focus on these principles:
As the open research world develops at a fast rate, we will continue to update our thinking and respond to the needs of our clients, research data librarians and other experts in the space.
