SWORD energising repository deposit

9th December 2008, by

The prospect of depositing to a repository from Facebook has recently been offered by SWORD, aka Simple Web Service Offering Repository Deposit. Consider also that Microsoft and the major physics repository, arXiv, will facilitate deposit via SWORD, then this simple protocol is achieving the previously unthinkable feat of making repository deposit exciting. Before you delve into these applications of SWORD, you will want to understand SWORD, and this new RSP briefing paper captures the essentials in an easily digestible form. From there you will be directed to resources that will show you how to apply SWORD to tackle the most problematic of repository issues, raising rates of content deposit.

All Briefing Papers are available from the Publications section of the RSP Website.
