The Repositories Support Project (RSP) and the Research Information Network (RIN) are holding this free event to look at how researchers are responding to mandates to include the results of their research work in repositories. It will cover the issues around both research funders’ and institutional mandates at institutional, subject-based and national levels and ask how these mandates are working in practice.
The meeting will be an opportunity to investigate the way that mandates are working, what policies and processes can improve this, how mandates can become embedded within the research cycle, and reflect on their current and future impact. The event is aimed at institutional managers, senior librarians, research funders, repository managers, publishers, learned societies and academic researchers. Places are free but limited, so please book early.
