Please excuse cross posting. We are trying to pose this question to the
IR community without regard to platform.
Does anybody have any statistics they'd be willing to share regarding
time or cost per item made available in an institutional repository?
Specifically, how long does it
take in total to upload a document, including time to:
Then any cost figures associated with this whole process.
- determine if a work is eligible in the first place (i.e.,
investigating publisher's copyright policy)
- acquire the full-text (postprints from faculty or publisher PDF
- uploading of metadata and document(s) itself
- any review done before making it fully public on the repository
- other steps?
Any insights appreciated!
