The JISC Publications Router is a free to use standalone middleware tool that automates the delivery of research publications from data suppliers to institutional repositories. The Router extracts authors’ affiliations from the metadata provided to determine appropriate target repositories before transferring publications to repositories registered with the service.

The Router offers a solution to the duplication of effort recording a single research output presents in the increasingly collaborative world of research publications. It is intended to minimise effort on behalf of potential depositors while maximising the distribution and exposure of research outputs.

The Jisc Publications Router service page is located at the following URL:

The site provides an opportunity to sign up for the Postcard Notification service and provides support materials for repository engagement.

It is possible to view content already held in the router using the institutional or target repository browse features.
