Streamlined infrastructure for Swedish research publications

Soon you will be able to access the total Swedish research publishing output at a single place! Via the development programme, The National Library of Sweden has granted 1.5 million Swedish kronor (= €160,000) to a project that aims to improve the accessibility and visibility of research publications by Swedish researchers, including a growing share of Open Access web publications.

A new service which will harvest metadata will be developed by the university libraries of Uppsala, Lund and Gothenburg in cooperation with the Department for LIBRIS at the National Library. It will provide a secure infrastructure for the reporting of research output, and the metadata will be made accessible for searching by end users and for harvesting to other services, thus facilitating an analysis of the scientific publishing output in Sweden.
