New OpenAIR@RGU repository launched today

We are pleased and excited to announce that today sees the launch of our new OpenAIR@RGU repository of RGU research outputs, which is now part of the Worktribe research information system. All the content from the old repository platform has been migrated over, and there will be additional features such as Profiles for researchers, projects etc. which will be built up over time. The new repository will benefit greatly by being integrated with the wider Worktribe research information system at RGU, making it much easier to share our research outputs with the world.

If you have any comments or queries regarding the new repository please contact the Library Publications team at publications@rgu.ac.uk

OpenAIR@RGU – monthly update (no.30 – June 2019)

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

Service Updates

The Publications Team have finished migrating our internal records to the Worktribe research information system and are now focusing on tidying these before we begin rolling out training for researchers on how to use the new system. Meanwhile, we are continuing to work on migrating our repository records to Worktribe as well. We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this transition period and we will continue to keep you updated of our progress. If you have any questions, please contact the Publications Team.

The repository currently contains 3,380 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:
