Next Generation Repositories: Moving from the "Fringe" to the Foundation of Scholarly Communication

Shearer, Kathleen

The transition to Open Access has created a unique moment for the examination of new models and platforms for the dissemination of scholarly outputs. Public infrastructures are being linked in novel ways. The COAR Next-Generation Repositories Working Group are developing new ways to position repositories as the foundation for a distributed, globally networked infrastructure for scholarly communication. Besides green OA, different paths to OA are being pursued, some of which are based on consortial or co-operative models, including the Open Library of Humanities, which operates under the principles of Fair OA in combination with consortial library funding. More recently, there have been calls for a modular European Open Access Platform for research to be built upon public infrastructure.
