The aim of the OA-RJ projectwas to assist open access deposit into, and interoperability between, existing repository services, by developing a deposit broker system. We were interested primarily in looking at the problems of repository deposit and interoperability faced by researchers who had written a multi-authored journal article from multiple institutions and grant-funding organisations. The project aimed to develop the Repository Junction from its simple form contained within the Depot, into a stand-alone broker mechanism which could be easily adopted and integrated by services or projects run by other institutions or organisations. This project tested the broker model against a number of use case scenarios in ways that we expected to be sufficiently generic to be deployed in other repository workflows and environments.
This project had a number of deliverables, including:
