N.B. TLRP generic project work ended in September 2009. The below information is for reference only.
All TLRP projects and other research activities should be registered
on appropriate websites. Two of the most important are Society Today and CERUK.
The TLRP DSpace repository provides a one-stop shop for registering publications for project annual reports, Regard and CERUK.
DSpace is the open source product of a $1.8 million collaboration
between Hewlett-Packard and MIT and made available to TLRP through
its links with the University of Cambridge Centre for Applied Research
in Educational Technologies. DSpace provides a repository to collect,
preserve, index and distribute all TLRP digital assets. The DSpace
system provides a way to manage these research materials and publications
to give them greater visibility and accessibility over time.
When you register your publication you will be asked to upload a
copy of the document. Where projects have difficulties depositing
documents into DSpace due to copyright restrictions special permission
should be sought from the publisher. The TLRP office will provide
for this as required. Often publishers will permit the circulation
of introductory chapters of books as long as it agreed that their
sale will be
promoted in the process. Whenever research users are directed to
project publications automatically through DSpace, or by the TLRP
office or Directors team, full details will be provided on where
to purchase copyright copies (from the publisher and/or Amazon).
As a general rule the following priorities apply on all publication
deposits to DSpace:
1. Whenever possible deposit the full publication.
2. Where a publisher refuses permission to deposit the full publication,
deposit the published abstract, introductory chapter, or cover image
back cover blurb.
3. Where all of these options are exhausted please provide your
own brief abstract or introduction to the publication.
