One of the work packages of the Hull Pathfinder (HHuLOA) was to look at open access service development. They did this by matching Jisc OA services alongside our current institutional workflows and the 6 sections in OAWAL (Open Access Workflows for Academic Librarians)– winner of the 2015 Ingram Coutts Award for Innovation in Electronic Resources Management.

A comprehensive matching of Jisc OA services to Institutional workflows and OAWAL is available here

A graphical representation of the OA Lifecycle is below:







Interestingly, the project identified the following gaps in provision in Jisc Services that would need to be filled for institutional workflows to better connect.

  • SHERPA Romeo/Juliet/Fact. Common definitions are terms are required for SHERPA, funders and institutions to overlap
  • SHERPA Romeo. The is nothing on Romeo regarding HEFCE compliance
  • SHERPA Fact. Auto prompting is required at the submission stage on the manuscript platform for Fact to be embedded
  • Publications router. De-duplication has to be done at the local level, which can increase the amount of staff time spent on each item (this is because router gets a lot of its information at the time of publication, rather than acceptance – often repository items are deposited after acceptance and before publication causing duplications
  • Publications Router. There is an issue for Repositories that get their information from a CRIS/WoS/Scopus and not through the SWORD protocol
  • Total cost of ownership (Jisc Collections NESLi2 negotiations). Metadata standards from publisher should be part of the NESLi2 model licence negotiation
  • Jisc Monitor. A single point of payment would be more efficient as individual APCs increase
  • JISC-OU CORE. There is a missing link here to other discovery systems, e.g. Primo, Summon, OCLC WordCat, EDS, Google Scholar
  • IRUS-UK. There is no link between the IR usage and the publisher usage e.g. AR1 report (as defined by PIRUS)
  • IRUS-UK. Altmetrics, these are available on some Repositories for items and for individual researchers but things are not linked with IRUS-UK etc.
  • There is a missing link here with Research Fish.
