Repositories and Institutional Grey Literature

COAR has launched a research project called “Next Generation Repositories” since 2016, which focuses on promoting itself to be research-oriented, open and conducive to innovation, so that it can facilitate the collective management of academic groups. The traditional repositories as the management of research outputs (thesis, thesis, etc.), at first, are basically in the category of “white literature”; Secondly, the publication of management on the Internet (forums, academic blogs, etc.), basically belong to the “white literature” ( The scope of White Literature). As the research data collection and management involved in the scientific research process is not fully integrated into the management domain of repositories, they are basically in the category of “grey literature”. Research data set retention and long-term management is a part of the academic practice of the discipline, and the data management problem and incorporating it into the academic practice has become a hot topic in the academic circle. The Operation management of traditional repositories is beginning a new upgrade exploration - research data management (RDM). (1) the type and data structure of grey literature in the next generation repositories; (2) the relationship among "white literature", "like white literature" and "grey literature" in knowledge chain; (3) systematic analysis of the logical relationship of "study-data-result-structure-correlation-effect-multiplexing-openness". In order to reveal the multi-dimensional relationship between institutional knowledge resources and research data, the integration of RDM organization process data association law, the key elements of multi-source heterogeneous data, and the establishment of effective knowledge links are analyzed. (4) the policy guarantee and implementation mechanism of the reuse and open utilization of institutional grey literature.
