An exciting future
Our team are constantly adding new features to Hyku in conjunction with our partners
We have now launched a new shared research repository for the British Library and partners. In a one-year collaborative development effort, we added support for new collection types with rich metadata, as well as key integrations with services such as DataCite and Crossref. With full multi-tenant support, the platform includes repositories for the British Library, British Museum, Tate, National Museums Scotland, Museum of London Archaeology, and Kew Gardens.
We have also recently launched Pacific University's Common Knowledge repository which was a successful migration from bepress Digital Commons.
Advancing Hyku is a collaborative project to optimize the the open source platform behind Ubiquity Repositories, Hyku, for green Open Access. The project partners are University of Virginia Library, Ubiquity Press and the British Library, with funding from Arcadia, a charitable fund of philanthropists Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin. The project runs October 2019-August 2021.
These project will drive green open access and will increase value to researchers with a combined approach of auto-population and expanding the array of integrated, open source services, making the repository a more attractive dissemination option. In order to achieve this the project will work to scale the repositories automatically by integrating open-resource discovery tools (e.g. Unpaywall and Open Access Button), connect deeply to author identification and profile services (e.g. ORCiD), and establish pathways to long-term preservation services. We will draw upon Ubiquity’s publishing experience to treat articles, books, and newer forms of scholarship in repositories as first-class objects and focus on authors to incentivize their participation.
The future of institutional repositories is here
Whether you want to start a repository for the first time, move from a costly self-maintained installation, or switch to a truly community-oriented solution, Ubiquity repositories offer you guaranteed performance, unbeatable features and dedicated support.
