Peter Millington (SHERPA, Nottingham) The New Improved OpenDOAR Directory of OA Repositories


This presentation will outline the significant changes that have been made to OpenDOAR during the summer. It is using a new data model with many more fields, and following a re-survey, it has almost doubled in size to list more than 700 repositories. The search facilities have been greatly enhanced, with more filter options and additional display formats, using the extra fields. Soon to be released is on an online tool that repository administrators can use to help formulate good Open Access policies and implement good management practices. Future plans include an API to allow external applications to interrogate the database.
