Establishing Open Access Institutional Repositories in Palestine

Establishing Open Access Institutional Repositories in Palestine

The Current Situation, the Lesson Learned and the Future

Dissemination Workshop

Introduction

The ROMOR Project “Research Output Management through Open Access Institutional Repositories in Palestinian Higher Education Institutions” aims over the course of three years to build capacity on research output management in four leading PS HEIs by establishing Open Access Institutional Repositories (OAIR). The training which is required to establish these repositories, and then their implementation, population and management are the core of the Project.

This Project aims to improve not only the visibility and the management of scientific research but also to promote the advocacy in support of open access to research outputs and to foster scholarly communication and coordination between Palestinian universities. The Project comprises 4 Palestinian universities and 4 European universities.

The Islamic University of Gaza

Birzeit University

Al-Quds Open University

Palestine Technical University - Kadoorie

Technische Universitaet Wien

Universita Degli Studi Di Parma

The University of Brighton

The University of Glasgow

Learning outcomes from these activities would be shared and disseminated through a series of training and dissemination workshops. This workshop is the first one in this series.
