DSpace@ScienceUofK repository open to the Faculty of Science U of K
On Jul 4th the preliminary version of the DSpace@ScienceUofK Institutional Repository (IR) has been made available at http://oascir.uofk.edu/ for the whole range of University of Khartoum IP addresses. That means researchers from the various departments at the Faculty of Science can now access the DSpace-based repository platform and check its features, including the 50 items presently filed in the IR.
A series of dissemination and training activities related to DSpace@ScienceUofK operation will shortly be carried out at the Faculty of Science. In order to design the list of topics to be dealt with at the dissemination sessions for researchers, the level of awareness reagarding Open Access and the publication habits of the Faculty of Science researchers should be assesed. To that purpose, an online survey on Open Access at U of K was set some time ago at http://es.surveymonkey.com/OAsurvey_FSciUofK. Despite having already collected some answers, the number of them should grow so that results become significant, so we'd like to invite all Faculty of Science researchers who haven't still taken the survey to do so before July 15th. Thank you.
