"In technical developments, this autumn we have launched a new version of Sherpa Juliet and are working on an upgrade to OpenDOAR. We have bolstered our support for ORCID and for repository technical support, looking at metadata standards and assistance.
Discovery of OA materials is an increasingly important topic for those wishing to ensure they have the most cost-effective solution for the use of materials. We are very proud to say that CORE, run by Jisc with the Open University, is the world's largest aggregator of OA materials, allowing search of over 82 million research articles – at time of writing. It will have gone up by the time you read this! In addition, unlike many other open access discovery services, CORE's aggregation of materials allows direct full-text access to over 8 million research articles.
Finally, we are pleased that SPARC Europe has just launched an initiative to encourage global users of Sherpa Romeo to contribute to service sustainability. This work will proceed over the coming year while a model for collaborative funding is evolved. But do note for UK users, contributions to Sherpa Romeo are covered: all part of hte Jisc subscription."
