The Publications Team will not be adding any new research outputs to our internal records or to the repository from 5pm on Tuesday 26th February until 9am on Monday 11th March.
This is an essential step in our implementation of Worktribe’s Outputs module and will ensure that the process is as smooth as possible. This should not cause any problems in terms of our compliance with the REF Open Access requirements, as long as all researchers send us the accepted versions of their journal articles and conference papers as soon as possible after they have been accepted for publication.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this transition period and will let you know if there are any adjustments to the dates stated above. If you have any questions, please contact the repository librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org

Welcome to the twenty-fifth monthly update on OpenAIR@RGU – RGU’s open access institutional repository. Please direct any queries to the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Publications Team are in the process of migrating our internal records and the content of OpenAIR to the Worktribe research information system. We hope to go live with the new “Outputs” and “Repository” modules of Worktribe in March this year. In order to ensure the stability of our data during the transition, there will be a temporary freeze on all new additions to our internal records and the repository towards the end of February. Normal service will then resume after a couple of weeks. More detailed information will be given nearer the time.
The repository currently contains 3,137 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:
