An Exciting Future
Our team are constantly adding new features to Hyku in conjunction with our partners
In line with our core values, Ubiquity Repositories are not only based on open infrastructure, but we also prioritize integration with other community-driven open infrastructure. We collaborated with the British Library to add integrations with DataCite, Crossref and the Funder Registry, as well as new work types with rich metadata and shared multi-tenant search.
We are also working on the Advancing Hyku Project to optimize the platform for green Open Access, along with the University of Virginia Library and the British Library with funding from Arcadia, a charitable fund of philanthropists Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin. This includes adding features to scale 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.
Beyond this we are working on new integrations that make the repositories hubs for the entire research lifecycle, where you can visualize a dataset, read and fork an open textbook, annotate a thesis, interogate a lab notebook and more. Stay tuned for new enancements!
