Brief project description: Using a web service approach and m2m interfaces such as Deposit API / SWORD,
this middleware facility will show proof of concept at an early stage by connecting two existing services: the Depot, a UK repository for researchers who do not have other provision, and, a web site for researchers to build a web page listing their publications. The latter has existing functionality for batch import of bibliographic metadata for a (personal) publications list – from a variety of online sources such as PubMed, Web of Science, and for the same for personal databases, such as EndNote, Reference Manager, BibTeX etc. Having reviewed the simple single-item deposit workflow, this project will demonstrate the value of acceleration across the workflow, gaining leverage for the depositor, and for repository services, from batch ingest from databases containing structured bibliographic data.
