Kathleen Shearer (COAR Executive Director and CASRAI Board member) posts a letter in response to comments made about institutional repositories.
"It is true that repositories have not yet completely fulfilled their potential, and there are efforts to shift the transition to open access through APC-based gold OA. However, this is a critical time for IRs. The global network is now at a point where we have an international mechanism to communicate with each other (COAR) and we are consolidating around a common vision and strategy for repositories."
NOTE: THE SUBMISSIONS DEADLINE FOR THIS OPEN CALL HAS PASSED. THANK-YOU FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION.
