  • Number of individual staff that work on repository whole or part time: 4
  • Core repository team or staff distributed throughout different departments: Some staff are located in other departments

  • Level of mediated deposit: Partially - people other than repository staff (e.g departmental admin, researchers) create records and then these are checked by repository staff. We harvest metadata automatically via our CRIS, and then publications are "claimed" by authors. All full text deposit will be mediated.

  • Percentage full-text: 100%
  • Currently have institutional policy / mandate: Yes
  • Currently have preservation policy for repository: No
  • Content types included in repository: Research articles, Datasets, Conference papers, Books, Software, Theses, Unpublished works. When the repository service goes live, we plan over time to include all the above stated item types.
  • Quality assurance policy for research content: We accept peer reviewed and non-peer reviewed materials. We take the approach that, if an academic wants to include an item, we will make efforts to facilitate this.
  • Currently have e-theses deposit policy: No
  • E-theses policy is opt-out (i.e. the thesis will be made OA unless the student requests an exception): N/A

Institutional context

  • Department with lead responsibility for repository: Library
  • Integration / plan for integration with research management systems: Already integrated

  • Which one?:
  • Bids for external funding: No
  • More about the repository: The repository at City is still in the planning and implementation stage. When implemented, the Current Research Information System will transfer data to the full text research repository. Both systems will then be used to populate staff profiles and other parts of the University's web presence.
