Research Information Systems in the Nordic Countries - Infrastructure, Concepts, and Organization

Abstract : This report is commissioned by the Nordbib programme, and is based on a web survey of the current status of CRIS (Current Research Information Systems) and IR (Institutional Repositories) in the Nordic countries. The survey has been conducted to investigate how Nordic higher education institutions collect and present their research output. Do they use Institutional Repositories and/or Current Research Information Systems, are these systems separate or integrated, what software is used, and how are they staffed and financed? An important part of the survey was to analyse the perceived needs for national and Nordic coordination and support regarding such specific issues as rights management, central search services, educational and promotional materials etc. The survey results are presented against international developments in Open Access, both historical and current. The main purpose of the survey is to help Nordbib gather relevant information for promoting greater visibility to Nordic research and offer a background for creating a joint Nordic approach to further developments in Open Access. A presentation of the survey project was given at the Nordbib Workshop on ”Research Visibility – managing quality for better evaluation” 27-28 October, 2008. We would like to thank the members of the Nordbib workshop group for valuable viewpoints regarding the final formulations in the questionnaire. We also wish to thank all our contacts in the Nordic countries for their invaluable help in identifying respondents and providing us with email addresses, and other valuable advice and support,
