UCT Scholarly outputs: online and discoverable- not always accessible (what about Rhodes??)

This report from the Open UCT Initiative investigates, by means of a limited analysis (using Google Scholar), the availability of articles by selected UCT researchers, and highlights the importance both of publishing in open access journals (if possible), and of depositing post-prints in discoverable repositories - (for example the Rhodes eResearch Repository!).

I suspect that if a similar study were to be conducted at Rhodes, the results would be much the same as at UCT.


Please contact me if you are interested in adding your publications to the Rhodes eResearch Repository (ReRR) Most publishers will allow you to deposit your post print.  See details regarding permissions at SHERPA/RoMEO.
