  "abstract": "<p>This presentation is about the\u00a0future potential for repositories in the coming years.\u00a0The nearly ubiquitous deployment of repository systems in higher education and research institutions provides the foundation for a distributed, globally networked infrastructure for scholarly communication. However, repository platforms are still using technologies and protocols designed almost twenty years ago, before the boom of the Web and the dominance of Google, social networking, semantic web and ubiquitous mobile devices. This is, in large part, why repositories have not fully realized their potential.</p>\n\n<p>In April 2016, COAR launched a\u00a0Working Group\u00a0to identify the core functionalities for the next generation of repositories. These functionalities include more web-friendly architectures, embedding repositories into the workflow of researchers, open peer review and quality assessment of content, and better impact and usage measures.</p>\n\n<p>With these new functionalities, COAR\u00a0aims to position repositories as the foundation for a distributed, globally networked infrastructure for scholarly communication, on top of which layers of value added services will be deployed, thereby transforming the system, making it more research-centric, open to and supportive of innovation, while also collectively managed by the scholarly community.</p>\n\n<p>This webinar was streamed twice on the day.\u00a0The webinar recording for 8h GMT is available and\u00a015h GMT is available at\u00a0</p>",
