Key points of conference paper

Key points of conference paper

  • Trend / benefits: open access to publicly funded research

  • RAE & RQF: restricted access to research output for purposes of assessment

  • Traditional self-archiving: relative lack of success

  • DEST HERDC: use to populate ePrints / OAR repository

  • RQF: use to boost content in ePrints / OAR repository


New developments

New developments?

Questions

Questions?

  • Document versions: publisher’s vs author’s

  • Automation of metadata

  • Build it; will they come?

  • “What’s in it for me?” when “It’s all about me”

  • Behavioural modification
