UKOLN, University of Bath
This briefing includes an overview of the changing landscape of scholarly communication and describes outcomes from the innovative eBank UK project, which seeks to build links from e-research through to e-learning. As introduction, some observed trends in e-research will be demonstrated and their implications for institutional resources, systems and services will be highlighted. The discussion will include an assessment of the scholarly knowledge cycle and the role of digital repositories and aggregator services in linking data-sets from Grid-enabled projects to e-prints through to peer-reviewed articles as resources in portals and Learning Management Systems. The briefing will also highlight technical developments from the eBank UK project, including the distributed information architecture, requirements for common ontologies, data models, metadata schema, open linking technologies, provenance and workflows. Some emerging challenges for the future will be presented in the conclusion.
