COAR is pleased to announce the publication of a new report in Spanish, “Incentivos, Integración y Mediación: Prácticas Sostenibles para poblar Repositorios”. This is a translation of the English language report published earlier this year, Incentives, Integration and Mediation, which presents the results of a review of sustainable practices for populating repositories undertaken by COAR.

La Confederación de Repositorios de Acceso Abierto (COAR) se complace en anunciar la publicación del nuevo informe en español, “Incentivos, Integración y Mediación: Prácticas Sostenibles para poblar Repositorios”. A principios de 2012, COAR comenzó un proyecto para recopilar y difundir las mejores prácticas replicables ysostenibles relacionadas con poblar repositorios. El informe publica ocho perfiles de prácticas exitosas para llenar de contenidos repositorios de todo el mundo. El informe concluye queno existe una única “bola mágica” para conseguir contenidos para un repositorio. Por el contrario, una estrategia sostenible implicará la aplicación de una serie de prácticascomplementarias para superar la variedad de los desafíos discutidos previamente.

Sustainable Practices for Populating Repositories Report published

COAR announces the publication of the report, “Incentives, Integration, and Mediation: Sustainable Practices for Populating Repositories” by COAR Working Group 1: Repository Content. The report profiles a variety of successful practices for populating repositories from around the world.

There is an active, thriving community of open access repositories worldwide and their visibility is rising as funding agencies and governments implement open access policies. Still, repositories must continue to adopt strategies that demonstrate their value to the wider research community. The aim of this report is to assist the global repository community in implementing sustainable methods for recruiting content. The profiles were gathered from organizations across the globe, and represent a mixture of approaches involving the introduction of incentives; integration of the repository with other institutional services; and/or mediation of the deposit process. The practices reflect a tradition of innovation and openness in the repository community, and are characterized by creative approaches to staffing, imaginative software developments, and adoption of novel policies.

The report will be available soon in Spanish.
