As discussed in our previous post the Jisc Publications Router has had a long and interesting history as a project. Now, as it moves into a new life as a beta service, the team have been working to spruce things up.
All existing features are still available; documentation for suppliers and consumers can be viewed and users can still browse all content by organisation or repository. The browse views have been tidied up and the citations are now significantly clearer:
The service the Router provides remains the same regardless of how it looks. The Router parses the metadata of an article to determine the appropriate target repositories and transfers the publication to the registered repositories. It minimises efforts on behalf of potential depositors while maximising distribution and exposure of research outputs.
