DeepGreen starts an extended test phase in cooperation with five renowned publishing houses

On 29 July 2019, the starting signal was given for an extended test phase of the project DeepGreen, in which the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek is a participant. The objective of DeepGreen is to distribute publications by publishing houses to authorized repositories automatically and to thus facilitate secondary open-access publication in Germany.

In cooperation with the pilot publishers S. Karger AG, SAGE Publications, MDPI, Frontiers and De Gruyter, as well as 27 universities and colleges from all over Germany – from the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences to the University of Konstanz – the extended test phase of DeepGreen has the goal to gain experience for live operation later on.

The focus is on processing extensive data deliveries by publishers on the one hand, and on making these data available for highly diverse repository software types (i. a. OPUS 4, DSpace, EPrints, MyCoRe) on the other hand. Moreover, it is intended to test in practice to which extent DeepGreen would have to provide customer support in future operation.

The press release on this project can be found on the website of DeepGreen.
