Irish Research

August 12, 2011

RIAN, the Irish word for path, is your route to Open Access Irish research publications.

RIAN is the outcome of a sectoral higher education project supported by the Irish Government’s ‘Strategic Innovation Fund’. Project planning was carried out by the seven Irish university libraries, DCUNUIGNUIMTCDUCCUCDUL and was supported by the Irish Universities Association (IUA).

The project aim is to harvest to one portal the contents of the Institutional Repositories of the seven university libraries, in order to make Irish research material more freely accessible, and to increase the research profiles of individual researchers and their institutions. It is intended to extend the harvest to other Irish research institutions as RIAN develops.  The aggregation of this content will have significant benefits. It will be the primary source for Irish Open Access research publications.  Jointly agreed metadata standards will facilitate more accurate searching and retrieval. The aggregated content will make further value-added features, such as  statistical analysis, possible.
