-From : Fixing the UK repository landscape. By Neil Jacobs ​JiscOpen access briefing paper, 23.10.18+Neil Jacobs.[[http://​repository.jisc.ac.uk/​7087/​1/​2018JiscOABriefingFixingUKRepositoryLandscape.pdf|Fixing the UK repository landscape]] Jisc Open access briefing paper, 23.10.18 ​\\   \\ 
 +**Introduction** \\ "This paper outlines the current state of the organisational,​ cultural and technical landscape related to OA repositories in the UK, trends and recent developments,​ and suggestions for improvement"​
  
-Repositories in the UK today \\ According to the global directory OpenDOAR5, there are 258 repositories in the UK, of which 180 hold research articles and, of these, 160 are institutionally-based (as opposed to being departmental or disciplinary). +**"Software** \\ Of the 160 institutional repositories,​ 27 use the DSpace open source software, 98 use the EPrints open source software, and 13 use Elsevier’s PURE product. A sizeable minority of those using open source software in fact pay for a hosted solution managed by a third party. Those with local installations are often running rather old software, perhaps because an accretion of local configurations makes it difficult to upgrade ​" \\

-According to the Universities UK 2017 Monitoring report , some 48% of articles with a UK author were openly available online other than on the publisher site, of which 15% were in institutional repositories,​ 13% in subject repositories,​ and 50% (likely illegally) on ResearchGate. The submission of items into institutional repositories is often mediated (or at least checked) by library staff, whereas that into subject repositories is usually direct by the author. While the REF policy has prompted many universities to increase the investment in their repositories,​ for others staffing for repository support remains rather low. \\ Software \\ Of the 160 institutional repositories,​ 27 use the DSpace open source software, 98 use the EPrints open source software, and 13 use Elsevier’s PURE product. A sizeable minority of those using open source software in fact pay for a hosted solution managed by a third party. Those with local installations are often running rather old software, perhaps because an accretion of local configurations makes it difficult to upgrade.+
