The OAI6 was held in Geneva on 17th-19th June 2009.


The workshop is aimed at those involved in the development of openaccess (OA) repositories and who can influence the direction of developments either within their institution, their country or at an international level - that includes technical developers of OA bibliographic databases and connected services, research information policy developers at university or library level, funding bodies concerned with access to the results of their research, OA publishers,and influential researchers keen to lead OA developments in their own field.

Some Thoughts during the Conference[edit]

  • We should really address OAI-ORE
  • Can we somehow participate in next OAI Conference? (As we already address lots of issues discussed)
  • Enhance SWORD interface, as this seems to be a big issue (you hear sword everywhere...)
  • We have a Researcher Portfolio, but no Organization Portfolio (perhaps of interest for institutes which do not want to host own page)
    • maybe simply establishing a WordPress blog as Organization portfolio would do the work? --Natasa 10:20, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
    • I thought we might simply generalise the researcher portfolio, as there is no big difference between--Friederike 11:18, 23 June 2009 (UTC) a researcher and an organization, they both have: identifier, publications, related links, address etc.
  • Are there any protocols for harvesting researcher data? As it seems that there are many researcher pages in the web, perhaps 'our' researcher page can function as an aggregation of those.
