Hello all: At the National University of Singapore, a task force has assembled to examine the possibility of setting up an open-access institutional repository to address some of the goals brought up by Stevan Harnad, but most importantly: > 5. (RES) self-archiving institutional research output (preprints, > postprints and theses) > > "Re: Central versus institutional self-archiving" > http://www.ecs.soton.ac.uk/~harnad/Hypermail/Amsci/3210.html > > "Re: EPrints, DSpace or ESpace?" > http://www.ecs.soton.ac.uk/~harnad/Hypermail/Amsci/2837.html The reason why I'm writing the list is because we are currently trying to estimate the amount of data that will eventually flow into the institutional archive. It's hoped that it will give us a way to estimate the cost of the budget for the project. Many of the parameters in the project are under discussion, so I can't give many informative details, but I'm interested in finding out whether any studies tabulating the size (and/or cost) of data going into institutional repositories have been done. I know this query is a bit underspecified, but I'm hoping that any leads that readers of this list might be able to offer will be able to help our group come up with an approximate figure. We feel it is good to consult expertise earlier rather than later. Of course, there are numerous other issues that need to be examined (e.g., copyright policy), and our group is checking these out in parallel. I've done some searching on the list archives, D-Ligband Ariadne, and as of now, I'm only aware of Theo Andrew's recent Ariadne article on repository postings at the Univ. of Edinburgh (http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue37/andrew/) and Michael Day's article on ePrints UK (http://www.rdn.ac.uk/projects/eprints-uk/docs/studies/impact/). I would be very happy to hear from you if you have any past or present lessons to share. I would be happy to post a summary of responses if there's interest.
