Special Issue Information

Following from the very successful Open Repositories 2017 in Brisbane, Australia, we would like to build on the conference theme of Open: Innovation, Knowledge and Repositories with a Special Issue of peer-reviewed papers, which further develop individual presentations and the broader conference themes. We would like to invite you, as a presenter at OR2017, to contribute to this Special Issue.

There were over 200 submissions to Open Repositories 2017, and over 95 were accepted as conference papers, panels, user groups and developer talks across a range of themes, including:

  • supporting open scholarship, open data, and open science
  • repositories and cultural heritage
  • repositories of high volume and/or complex data and collections
  • managing research data, software, and workflows
  • integrating with the wider web and external systems
  • exploring metrics, assessment, and impact
  • managing rights
  • developing and training staff
