We had a very useful meeting with Laurian from the RSP last week. It was helpful to discuss our progress and findings so far. Laurian said she will be blogging in detail about the meeting so I will post a link when she has.

It is now confirmed that the JISCrte projects will be having their mid-term meeting in Edinburgh in August. Alan will be attending – this is a useful opportunity to talk to the other projects in out funding stream as well as share our findings with people attending the Repository Fringe.

I will also be attending the Kultivate end of project event in July and giving information about EXPLORER. I look forward to some useful discussions.

Otherwise the work is progressing nicely. Technically we are looking at how to integrate non-text outputs better within DORA and incorporating the CERIF4REF tool which will enable DORA to link with the REF admission system when it arrives. An updated advocacy strategy and materials are being drafted to support the enhancements to DORA.
