COAR announced the publication of the initial outcomes of the COAR Next Generation Repositories Working Group, established in April 2016.
The Group, with 20 experts from all over the world including our Chief Technology and Innovation Officer Andrea Bollini, was created to help identify functionalities and technologies for repositories and develop a roadmap for their adoption.
The Working Group presents 12 user stories that outline priority functionalities for repositories based on a very clear vision:
“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.”
The document, open to public comments until March 3, 2017, is available here: nextgenrepo.coar-repositories.org
