JOIN² - Just anOther INvenio INstance
join² - a shared repository infrastructure based on the software INVENIO from CERN. Project partners are the libraries of Deutsches Elektronensynchrotron DESY (Hamburg/Zeuten), Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum DKFZ (Heidelberg), Forschungszentrum Jülich (Jülich), GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung (Darmstadt), Maier-Leibnitz-Zentrum (Garching), Museum Zitadelle (Jülich), Rheinisch Westfälische Technische Hochschule RWTH (Aachen) and the KIT Institut für experimentelle Kernphysik (Karlsruhe).
Most scientific institutions use publications databases of some sort to collect and display their output. Besides publications lists on the Web, these can be used together with literature management tools, in grant applications and reporting. Additionally, the administration requires publication lists sorted by complex criteria for evaluation and budgeting.
Invented in the first place to enable and further Open Access to scientific literature, institutional repositories can serve all those needs, if the meta data are detailed enough and complementary bibliographic entries are possible. Striving for an easy to use solution accepted by scientists and adding local, protected working areas for publication exchange, addition of of full texts is encouraged, furthering Open Access as a welcome side effect. Thus, merging publications database and repository allows to exploit synergies to the advantage of all stakeholders.
join² repositories today serve more than 20.000 staff members and more than 5.000 local visitors annually on campus. They provide more than 300.000 records as well as nearly 90.000 high quality authority records freely on the Internet. This makes join² one of the larger Invenio users world wide.
The project is open for new partners who want to join the collaboration repository infrastructure.
