FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 20, 2015
The deadline for main conference and interest group proposal submissions
and scholarship programme applications is January 30, 2015.
The Tenth International Conference on Open Repositories, OR2015
<http://www.or2015.net/><http://www.or2015.net/>, will be held on June 8-11, 2015 in
Indianapolis (Indiana, USA). The organizers are pleased to invite you to
contribute to the program. This year's conference theme is:
LOOKING BACK, MOVING FORWARD: OPEN REPOSITORIES AT THE CROSSROADS
OR2015 is the tenth OR conference, and this year¹s overarching theme
reflects that milestone: Looking Back/Moving Forward: Open Repositories
at the Crossroads. It is an opportunity to reflect on and to celebrate
the transformative changes in repositories, scholarly communication and
research data over the last decade. More critically however, it will
also help to ensure that open repositories continue to play a key role
in supporting, shaping and sharing those changes and an open agenda for
research and scholarship.
OR2015 will provide an opportunity to explore the demands and roles now
expected of both repositories and the staff who develop, support and
manage them - and to prepare them for the challenges of the next decade.
We welcome proposals on this theme, but also on the theoretical,
practical, organizational or administrative topics related to digital
repositories. We are particularly interested in:
1. SUPPORTING OPEN SCHOLARSHIP, OPEN SCIENCE, AND CULTURAL HERITAGE ONLINE
2. MANAGING RESEARCH (AND OPEN) DATA
3. INTEGRATING WITH EXTERNAL SYSTEMS
4. RE-USING REPOSITORY CONTENT
5. EXPLORING METRICS AND ASSESSMENT
6. MANAGING RIGHTS
7. DEVELOPING AND TRAINING STAFF
8. BUILDING THE PERFECT REPOSITORY
Submissions that demonstrate original and repository-related work
without these themes will be considered, but preference will be given to
submissions which address them.
