ABOUT THE RESOURCE
In this hour-long EIFL webinar Biljana Kosanovic from the University of Belgrade Computer Centre talks about repositories as a service for research communities and about open science policies in Serbia. Her colleague, Vasilije Rajović, presents an App he developed that introduces CRIS-like (Current Research Information Systems) capabilities in DSpace repositories, assigns ORCIDs, creates author profiles and monitors Altmetric scores and Dimensions citations. Obrad Vučkovac from Vinca Institute of Nuclear Science talks about massive metadata editing and metadata import from CrossRef or other repositories. And Milica Ševkušić from the Institute of Technical Sciences of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (SASA) presents text mining functionalities, repository policies, integration and interoperability, optimization for Google Scholar crawlers and integration of repositories in international infrastructures (OpenDOAR, BASE, OpenAIRE, CORE, Unpaywall and WorldCat).
Successes of the customized platform and organizational model discussed in the webinar include:
- Increased visibility of Serbian research outputs, especially in the humanities;
- 90–100% of deposits in humanities are open access;
- Fairly high percentage of full-text content in repositories (75% on average);
- Growing awareness in the local research community about the potential of repositories to enhancing scholarly communication.
