How will my publications be preserved for the long term via the Digital Academic Repository of the UvA?
Through the national DARE initiative, a co-operative project in which all Dutch universities, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), SURF, the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) and the Royal Library (KB) participate, arrangements will be made to preserve electronic publications for the long term. It is the intention that these publications will be deposited via the university repositories in the e-Depot of the Royal Library. The Royal Library is an international leader in the area of long term preservation of digital publications. During the DARE project (2003-2007) the necessary connections will be made between the Digital Academic Repository of the UvA and the e-Depot of the KB.
With the Browse option for authors you can see your publication list by looking for your own name. You can link to your publication list with http://dare.uva.nl/author/lastname,initial(s). When there are more than one initial, they must be separated with periods.
|dare.uva.nl/author/groenendijk,j.||Publications for J. Groenendijk.|
|dare.uva.nl/author/benthem,j.f.a.k.van||Publications for prof.dr J.F.A.K. van Benthem.|
With the Browse option for faculities you can see your faculty or deprtement/institute publication list by looking for your faculty name and then select your institute/department name. You can link to these publication lists with the url's provided on the page, for example:
|dare.uva.nl/en/fee||Publications for the Faculty of Economics and Econometrics (fee).|
- A repository in which your publications will be archived and which will be connected in the coming years with the e-Depot of the Royal Library.
- A public interface through which users can search and browse the bibliographical records (metadata) of all the archived publications.
- A permanent link (URL) to the complete publication in the repository, if the author has given permission for the publication to made available externally.
- Bibliographical records (metadata) are placed in other information services that are part of the national and international scientific information network.
- For all authors with publications in the Digital Academic Repository:
- All bibliographical records will include UvA-linker services.
- 'Notify a colleague' service, with which colleagues can be notified about a publication of interest.
You can make your publication world-wide available without any special arrangements in these cases:
- No agreement was signed for the publication in which the ownership was transferred.
- An agreement was signed, but it leaves the possibility for making the publicationa available thorugh an institutional archive.
Sometimes an agreement has been signed with a publisher which only allows a working paper or preprint to be made public available through an archive. Usually these are allowed to remain publicly available after publication in the journal.
If an agreement has been signed in which the author has transferred all rights on the publication, then the publisher must be contacted. Regrettably, this situation occurs regularly, especially when dealing with the large, commercial publishing houses. It is therefore important to consider carefully before signing away one's rights fully and one-sided, given the effect of these agreements on the availability of publications.
The Digital Academic Repository of the Universiteit van Amsterdam complies with the requirements of the Open Archives Initiative so that bibliographical records (metadata) can be harvested from the repository and indexed in a variety of information systems. As a result, metadata about UvA publications can be found in other databases.
