Potential Deposits

A great success this week is that we have developed a report that runs against the publications management system which can give the project partners an idea of the potential limit of allowed deposits through the deposit interface. It works by using stored information about the SHERPA RoMEO colours for the ISSNs of each publication in the system to build a profile of which publications have which colours associated with them. Then we can see of the total number of publications in the system which have GREEN and BLUE colours. We have tried this out on the Keele University instance, and found an incidence of around 25% legitimately archivable articles. Now we're in the process of gathering this information across all the systems, and we'll aim to publish our first baseline survey shortly.
