SPARC released a report May 21, 2015, Promoting Open Knowledge and Open Science: Current State of Repositories.
The report was produced on behalf of the COAR Aligning Repository Networks Committee, with significant input from many representatives of the repository community - including SPARC. It provides a high-level overview of the international repository landscape, as well as an interesting
summary of the current repository environment around the world. It also explores potential new future directions that repositories might consider taking.
The report was also submitted to the Global Research Council (GRC) and the Research Council’s UK as supplementary material for a GRC workshop that SPARC participated in on the future of scholarly communication held in April in London, and will be distributed to the member representatives of both organizations.
Feel free to share this with any interested people in your libraries and network. The full report is available here:
