Event Details

Why Jisc Monitor?

For library teams who have the facility to manage compliance checking and APC costs through other systems (such as extended functionality within a CRIS or IR) the main benefit of Monitor will be the intelligence available from the UK Aggregation shared service. This will provide insights regarding costs and volumes elsewhere for the range of titles where APCs are being placed. Subject to ongoing work with the research funders, the UK Aggregation is also expected to provide a trusted mechanism for submitting data to funders, even for users not using Monitor Local.

Monitor Local is a hosted software application enabling institutions to record and report on compliance and cost data relating to the publication of Open Access outputs by their academics. This will help the institutions to collected the necessary information related to the publication of open access academic outputs within the institution; to ensure funding for Article Processing Charges (APCs) is used appropriately; to support tracking of Gold and Green open access publication for any particular academic output; and to report internally and externally on open access publication and use of funds.

What’s the plan?

Jisc is looking to develop these applications as services within the coming 2015-16 academic year, so the project team is currently going through a short phase of design and development planning (September to mid-November), with a view to commencing development and piloting immediately thereafter.

We will therefore be running two full day workshops in London to present developments and elicit feedback: 12 October and 19 November (more information will follow on the second date, closer to the time).  Additional online webinars will also be run to update on progress and to consult on key design issues. 

Monday 12 October – 1030 to 1530 at Jisc, Brettenham House, London – Update on development and pilot plans for Monitor Local and the UK Aggregation; review of Minimum Viable Product and of priority options regarding research output types, compliance and financial recording and reports

Wednesday 19 November - 1030 to 1530 at Jisc, Brettenham House, London – Update on addressing funder requirements; review of unresolved issues and priorities; presentation of finalised development plan; agreement on pilot participation and other feedback mechanisms
