e-pubs Christmas wrap-up

Posted by Antoinette Cass on December 18, 2009

The e-publications@bond team recently achieved its goal of having 3,000 items in the repository before the end of 2009.
Since the upgrade to the platform in April this year the repository has seen growth in all Faculty series and journals with the addition of a Teaching and Learning series. The BTSD faculty is now fully represented with collections for the School of Sustainable Development, the School of Hotel, Resort and Tourism Management and the Australian Centre of Family Business joining the community.
Of major significance is the completion of the task of uploading all 10 issues of the ADR Bulletin published by the Law Faculty over the last eleven years. Thank you to Kendall and Rob for your great work on this journal.
Content will soon be appearing for a new journal that has only just been installed on e-pubs this week entitled The International Journal of Finance and Banking. This journal will be fully edited via the e-pubs site by Prof. Ariff of BTSD who is looking forward to managing the journal articles, which are submitted from all over the world, and corresponding with reviewers in an online environment.
The number of Personal Researcher Pages in the repository has also surged ahead this year with over 70 new pages being created for academics across the faculties, creating a total of 181 PRPs.
Of course I haven’t yet mentioned the Federal government’s Excellence in Research (ERA) Initiative which necessitated the checking and uploading of several hundred papers into the restricted access, or ‘dark side’ of the repository. This area of work will once again be a priority in 2010, but will hopefully be made easier with use of the Excel ‘batch upload’ process now available on the Digital Commons platform. Thank you to Lisa for your assistance in setting-up this new procedure.
Congratulations to all members of the e-pubs team on achieving all the targets set in these various areas of repository work in 2009, and making this a very productive year.
