New Framework Agreement for research outputs

The Jisc-led Research Outputs Repository Systems DPS (Dynamic Purchasing System) Framework Agreement has been launched and will run for up to four years.

The Framework Agreement supports institutions by providing systems that enable you to deposit, publish, share, discover, access and cite research related digital objects with differing file formats and sizes. The main outputs will be journal articles, theses and research data.

The repositories will contain both public (open) and restricted (closed) outputs and outputs that are under embargo to a certain date. They will hold information about authors and contributors and their projects for example author name, department, projects, publications, contact details and collaborators.

Further details on the agreement including a Buyers’ Guide, can be found on the HE Contracts portal.
