Call for Proposals

The Ninth International Conference on Open Repositories, OR2014, will be held 9-13 June 2014 in Helsinki, Finland. The organizers are pleased to invite you to contribute to the program. This year’s conference theme is:

Towards Repository Ecosystems

Repository systems are but one part of the ecosystem in 21st century research, and it is increasingly clear that no single repository will serve as the sole resource for its community. How can repositories best be positioned to offer complementary services in a network that includes research data management systems, institutional and discipline repositories, publishers, and the open Web? When should service providers build to fill identified niches, and where should they connect with related services?  How might these networks offer services to support organizations that lack the resources to build their own, or researchers seeking to optimize their domain workflows?

Examining how repositories best integrate into the holistic research flow; exploring ties between domain-specific repositories and institutional repositories; and understanding durable content strategies outside of traditional repository environments are the central themes of the Open Repositories 2014 conference. We welcome proposals on these themes, but also on the theoretical, practical, organizational or administrative topics related to digital repositories. We’re particularly interested in hearing about:

  • Unconventional approaches to repository-like services
  • Interconnection between publishers and repositories
  • Researcher-centered design for scholarly workflows
  • Adaptations to support curation lifecycle management, e.g., for research data
  • Real-world scalability and performance stories: working at web-scale, with big data for global usage
  • Requirements for holding restricted or classified data in repositories
  • Infrastructure to accommodate national and international mandates for data management and open access
  • Positioning repositories closer to (local, consortial, or cloud-based) cyberinfrastructure for data processing
  • Leveraging connections to external services including:
    • Remote identifier services (e.g., DOI, ORCID)
    • (Re-)using repository data/metadata in new and unexpected ways, including integrated discovery
    • Scholarly social media services, such as for annotation, review, comment, reputation, citation, and altmetrics
    • CRIS and research management systems
    • Digital preservation tools, services & infrastructure
  • Community and sustainability in an open world
