Publications Router, the Jisc service that captures research articles from publishers and distributes them to UK institutional repositories, is now fully interoperable with Worktribe, the cloud-based platform for higher education administration.
If you use Worktribe’s Outputs product, you can receive articles that Router has matched to your institution– including the full text from a growing range of publishers – directly and seamlessly into your system. They can then be reviewed and approved by the authors and repository management staff before public release using your usual procedures.
This has been tried out by a group of pilot institutions. Working with Jisc, Worktribe have now added further improvements to the integration, and both organizations are now ready to offer it to institutions for live use.
About Publications Router and Worktribe
Publications Router captures content such as research articles from publishers and other providers and delivers it straight into the repositories of institutions to which the authors are affiliated. The resulting notifications consist of rich, authoritative metadata (including licensing details) and often the full text of the articles themselves.
Worktribe is a cloud-based platform offering a suite of products for end-to-end research management. From Opportunities through to Outputs and the central open access repository, the Worktribe platform enables collaboration, efficiency and transparency.
