The status of IR/CRIS in the Nordic countries



Commissioned by the Nordbib programme, a new report on the history and practice of Institutional Repositories (IR) and Current Research Information Systems (CRIS) is available for download here. The report was written for Nordbib by Ingegerd Rabow, Ph.D., of Lund University. Ms. Rabow also wrote the earlier report from Nordbib on Open Access in the Nordic region – that one with Turid Hedlund of Hanken School of Economics.
The report delineates current practice in the Nordic region based on an enquete study, but it reviews the history of these kinds of systems as well.
The report is the final outcome of the second Nordbib workshop held in October 2008 in Elsinore, Denmark. The workshop was entitled 'Workshop on research visibility - managing quality for better evaluation.' There is more about the workshop here.
