 +===== NEWS : (Jisc) Repository Purchasing Framework (May 2020) =====
 +
 +**Research Outputs Repository Systems Purchasing Service [[http://​repository.jisc.ac.uk/​7832/​1/​research-outputs-repository-systems-purchasing-buyers-guide.pdf|Buyer’s Guide]]** (includes an Appendix: Technical Requirements)
 +
 +Jisc announce the completion of the first round of supplier evaluations and that the purchasing service is now live for institutions to use, with the following suppliers (repositories) already accepted: \\  \\ • 4Science s.r.l. (DSpace and DSpace-CRIS) \\ • Digital Science & Research Solutions Inc (Figshare) \\ • Elsevier BV (Mendeley Data) \\ • MyScienceWork (Polaris) \\  \\ Details of the DPS and how to procure through it can be found at the service webpage: \\  \\ [[https://​www.jisc.ac.uk/​research-outputs-repository-systems-purchasing|https://​www.jisc.ac.uk/​research-outputs-repository-systems-purchasing]] \\
 + \\
 +**How does it work? ** \\ The DPS sets out minimum standards that suppliers must comply with in order to have their product included. These are set out in the Appendix to the Buyer’s guide which can be downloaded from the service webpage. Jisc members (which include all publicly funded UK universities) can use the service to run mini competitions with suppliers, using standard templates provided, and adding additional requirements of their own, if necessary. Jisc will administer the process on behalf of the member, who can use their own criteria to identify their preferred supplier. If a supplier is selected, Jisc notifies all bidders of the result and contracts are between the preferred supplier and member are drawn up. \\  \\ **Benefits and opportunities for Jisc members** \\ • The framework reduces the procurement burden for members: it facilitates a light touch procurement process for members, as OJEU requirements will have already been fulfilled. Members can focus solely on their specific requirements. \\ • Members can be confident that the services included use a clear set of sector standards \\ • The market for such services becomes more transparent,​ efficient and effective. \\ • Members get better value for money. \\  \\ **Opportunities for repository suppliers** \\ Repository suppliers can apply to join the DPS at any time. Details can be found here [[https://​procontract.due-north.com/​Advert?​advertId=7d070ad9-8e5c-ea11-80ff-005056b64545|https://​procontract.due-north.com/​Advert?​advertId=7d070ad9-8e5c-ea11-80ff-005056b64545]] \\

-According to the global directory OpenDOAR5there 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).+
  
-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 illegallyon 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.\\ +====== Research Data Management ​(RDM======
