I popped into the UQ to visit Belinda today. UQ's "eSpace" repository uses "Fez", based on the Fedora repository software.
The ACS is building an Open Access publishing system which could feed the RQF system with publications
A reminder, that on Wednesday of next week (8 November), Belinda Weaver, Coordinator e_Prints and UQ eSpace (University of Queensland), will discuss what institutions need to do to be ready to manage the Research Quality Framework (RQF) a particular challenge for Australian Universities at present. The University of Queensland has already done two RQF trials – the first in 2005 using Web pages to deliver research to assessors, and the second in 2006 delivering research via an institutional repository. Belinda will talk about workflow issues, time and project management, query handling and communication.
Note the time: NOT a lunchtime event, but a late afternoon one!
Belinda is on the sub-group of the DEST RQF IT Working Party. There are many questions about the RQF (what research gets included? who decides what academic work is "best", etc) and Belinda will try to answer a good few of these in her talk.
