OpenAIR@RGU – monthly update (no.33 – September 2019)

OpenAIR logo.

Welcome to the thirty-third monthly update on OpenAIR@RGU – RGU’s open access institutional repository. Please direct any queries to the team at publications@rgu.ac.uk.

Service Update

We migrated our legacy data into Worktribe over the summer, but we are still working to fix lots of inaccuracies and errors that have appeared in our records during the migration. If you spot any problems when using Worktribe or OpenAIR, please let us know and we’ll fix them as quickly as possible.

Later this year, we will begin running training sessions for researchers on how to use the Outputs module in Worktribe. This training will cover searching for existing outputs as well as adding new ones. Please note: you will need to have attended a “Getting Started with Worktribe” basic training session first, in order to be given access to the system. Contact the RAMP team (ramp@rgu.ac.uk) to arrange your basic training.

Content

The repository currently contains 3,571 links between Schools and outputs (some records are linked to multiple Schools and therefore included in this figure more than once). Some examples of recent additions to the repository include the following outputs:

Each School currently has the following number of records on OpenAIR:

Downloads

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide reliable download statistics at the moment. This is due to technical issues that arose during the migration to Worktribe. We hope to be able to provide this information again soon.

The above data were correct at the time of writing (25.09.2019).
