Abstract

In this paper, we analyze requirements for institutional repositories from the viewpoint of the research cycle, and find that it is critical existing repository systems have little functions managing social relations of researchers. These findings lead us to a new, general model in which an institutional repository is one of backyard systems and an SNS platform is an interface for researchers. The SNS platform enables researchers to work together with co-workers on many services including an institutional repository because the SNS platform provides, in addition to the unified interface, authentication and authorization mechanism for other backyard systems. For instance, we can use a search engine with access control and hence academic resources not available to the public, such as a manuscript of a paper, can be safely indexed by the search engine. This model is placed at the upstream of the research cycle and an system based on this model can support researchers to create new papers in addition to preserving created papers. Using the grouping function of the SNS platform, the mainteinance of our authentication and authorization mechanism is done in a sustainable manner, compared to other standard authentication or authorization systems, such as ACLs (Access Control Lists).
