Following the recent release of the Research Catalogue (RC), the Society for Artistic Research (SAR) seeks institutional partners to pilot the use of the RC as institutional repository and/or alternative publication platform for three years. Possibilities exist for portal partnership for all or part of the duration of the pilot project (January 2012-December 2014). Members of SAR paying 5000 euro or more annually are eligible to apply to be portal partners. Additional costs, including administration and introduction workshop, are negotiated according to the needs of individual partners.
Please refer to http://www.jar-online.net for an impression of how the portal structure would work. The Journal of Artistic Research table of contents links to specific research in the RC. It is displayed in a new window using a stable URL in the http://www.researchcatalogue.net domain. Portal partners could use such links on dedicated web pages or within their institutional repository.
RC Portal Pilot partners receive the rights to receive and manage submissions made to their specific portal on the RC. If they accept the submission, the submitted research will be fixed, receive a stable URL and will be indexed as belonging to the portal. While this workflow will be managed through RC administration tools, portal partners need to decide how to use those URLs within their websites or repositories and to design workflows independent of this project to make the best use of their research on the RC.
